Ok I've got a series 7 FD, it have the motor rebuilt (before I got it) at 80,000kms and the turbos were aparrently fine then (I would have got them rebuilt anyway seeing as the motor was out but thats another story) anyhow car used a bit of oil since last service (1.5 ltrs in 5000kms) and I checked the intercooler piping and sure enough theres oil (plenty of it) so I'm faced with rebuilding the twins or going single turbo.

For now I want to spend the minimum amount of money as I just spent $$$ on a s8 front and various other upgrades before finding my turbos are ready to be chucked! And the missus isn't happy with all the money getting spent on my baby.

I already have a series 5 rx7 hybrid TO4e turbo was sitting waiting for my 323 project but I'd like to use it.

Basically what I want is can I the turbo I already have get a manifold setup with an external wastegate etc, run standard boost levels and leave it at that for now?
