Re: Why does my car sound like a motorcycle!?!? (burtonguy567)

umm the oil is coming from the snail itself?, did you run a restrictor before the turbo oil feed?......you may be able to replace the seals.....blowing oil is bad for the seals, but usually means the journals are still lubricated.....pull the hot side off and take a look

ok the restrictor has to be very small....we are talking like 1.5mm, a 4AN fitting is huge compared to that......if there isnt a restrictor thats your problem.....the internal oil seals are only meant to support super small amounts of oil pressure....thats y you want the oil to drain quickly........as for cost you can do it yourself or bring it to any good garage and get it done.....the kit for my k26 was 100 bucks for all the seals
