    New Turbo Leaking

    Well time to break the bad news. I did the compression test and cylinder 2 was at 90. So, I did a wet test and it came up to 125. I meant to post this yesterday. I will be going to pick up a built short block tomorrow.

    New Turbo Leaking

    I appreciate the kind words Kryndon. I removed the catch can and my PCV line and breather line are back to stock. I wouldn’t tear into the turbo if it comes to it I’ll ship it to Justin and see if he sees anything. Honestly, I will only know more with a compression test which I did right after I...

    New Turbo Leaking

    Sorry haven’t updated in a few days. I got super discouraged by this whole ordeal after dumping so much money into the car. Also before reading below, I want to note that the car has not ran for almost 3 years. I did put it together at the end of 2017 and idled it a handful of time in which I...

    New Turbo Leaking

    Well, my catch can had a check valve pointed in the wrong direction and my PCV line had a check valve pointed in the wrong direction which ended up pushing air into the crank case and letting 0 pressure out....I was dumb very very dumb and excited and just threw the lines on without checking...

    So, I had an issue with the PCV routing the first time I started the car and had entirely too much crank case pressure. It ran 20 seconds according to ecmlink. At this point I’m starting to think that 20 seconds was long enough to screw the seal on the turbine side. And I completely agree that...

    New Turbo Leaking

    I know where the oil is coming from. I never said I didn’t know where the oil is coming from. And 1990TSI you are correct about there being a crush washer on the fitting that goes into the turbo. I had been awake like 30 hours. My issue is there is oil being pushed past the turbine side seal...

    New Turbo Leaking

    It is 4an feed line from OFH so no crush washers. It was just rebuilt and literally has 3-4min of idle time on it. What I haven’t checked and feel dumb for now is oil pressure. So, I will be going to auto parts store for a gauge and install kit tomorrow.

    New Turbo Leaking

    Alright I am calling all gurus for this. I have talked with JusMX already and we both aren’t sure what’s going on. My old school green is slowly leaking during idle(see attached picture). I fixed my PCV system back to stock. I pulled the drain line and there aren’t any kinks or blockages in the...

    2G Turbo oil feed line

    That post he linked you to really isn't a good link because they argue more than tell what to do. I would wait for another response. Just my 2c.
