You're about to blow your seals, ruin your turbo, and incur great expense and labor, and down-time. Restricots are cheap and E-Z to install. What are U waiting for?

this is an old post, so I guess that using -4AN inlet and -12AN otlet for the oil should be fine right? I am going to be set up shortly with a to4r. My oil pump has had its ports enlsrged and the irons have been ported. plus I have increased the pressure relief valve spring by adding a couple of washers beneath the spring, on the new stock FD spring.

I would nt want any problems with a smoking turbo, apart fro the damage that can be caused since my oil pressure is quite high. I run 3 rotor main bearings thus i added the pressure.



Thanks guys



George
