    thats exactly what Mike over at TurbosDirect AZ told me. The oil pressure will keep the seals sealed.. if it was leaking air out the cooling ports. there would be oil everywhere! I agree on that. HOWEVER. I had mentioned that it wouldn't disperse air out the cooling ports if I had left the oil return port opened.

    You did install an oil feed restrictor right?

    In your oil feed, there is a fitting that restricts the amount of oil that the turbo gets, commonly known as an oil feed restrictor. Ball bearing turbos need this, typically journals don't. It goes between the oil feed and turbo fittings. You can find them at ATPturbo.com

    Yes! I simply added that because he may have not been aware since he didn't need one with his greddy kit.

    ... you I dont have a restrictor on the kit -_____- if that is the problem... i'm going to be embarrassed. I did have to use a nipple thing similar to that to connect the oil line. but its the same looking one as before on the greddy kit. Could that be the reason why it this kit is failing?!

    Ball bearing turbos require far less oil than journal bearing turbos and need a restrictor to prevent the oil flow to the turbo from exceeding what it can handle. I'm not sure if that could cause your problem or not, but regardless you should be using one.
