The above pics didn't load for me before, only the one with the jack. Now that I see the others.....



Love it! but SERIOUSLY dumped might not be drivable lol. If no turbo I'd say drive slow and low, but.. that won't happen.

Just ordered a stage 2 on-center turbo from turbocharging dynamics , $780 shipped to my door, pretty pricey comparred to my $250 ebay turbo... mine is way to large and this smaller one will spool up alot quicker , today i will be pulling my exhaust and turbo.... aswell as looking into where those oil fumes are coming from...i m thinkin it is the turbo because oil from the cylinders would be more burnt and any car throwing that much oil wouldnt run smooth at all, i will check the spark plugs for oil and but i doubt its an engine problem (cross your fingers!!!)

Did you put a restrictor in the oil feed line? Might need one.
