Hey guys, I'm new here and hopefully this is the right section for this thread, but I've been following y'all's advice here for a while now with my MK4 big turbo build. That being said I need some advice on an oiling issue I've just encountered on my builds final stages where my oil filter housing and head are getting zero oil. I've just pulled the filter housing and it's mostly dry aside from one small oil port. Has anyone come across this problem before? I definitely used too much sealant on the gasket but I'm not quite understanding how oil isn't reaching the entire housing like this. My factory oil pressure light didn't seem to have an issue for the 30 to 45 seconds I had it cranked but my aftermarket one clued me in on the issue as it's connected via sandwich plate to the housing. It has a brand new OEM oil pump from ECS tuning, fully built AWP 1.8T with IE H-beam rods and Wiseco 9.6:1 Pistons. Any help is appreciated, thank you.

Update:

Took off the oil pan to inspect for anything out of place, oil pump and tube look healthy in my opinion, windage tray was loose being held up by a single bolt but otherwise okay, the pickup tube's o-ring was slightly crushed but felt like it made a good deal, also I'm not sure if this is worth mentioning, but the oil pan pick up tube and windage Tray are all from an AWD 1.8T

Well I guess I found The answer by myself, but I'm not quite understanding how a brand new oil pump would do this? Maybe if somebody would chime in I would appreciate some advice to make sure my next one doesn't do this.
