    Glad that the new engine is in =).

    Good luck with the squeaking sound. Will be nice once it's all worked out at least.

    It was 69lbs and shipped ground commercial.

    Well, I found an oil leak...checked it out...its leaking at the oil return on the bottom of the turbo. We put it up on the lift and put a better clamp around it and tightened down but today we put it back up on the lift and its still leaking...so we are suspected a crack in the hose. Great...maybe one day I will have it broken in so I can go to Agile and get it re-tuned. I did make it to about 460 miles....

    Source a braided line. JoeMomma was having that issue last year. It just took him forever to source a braided line, but once he did, everything was kosher.

    What? The oil return a braided line? Never heard of it. Definitely the oil feed line, but never the return.

    That short little hose is a son of a gun to get to fit correctly when you put the turbo on. I could see it cracking, or the spring clamp not seating correctly and causing a leak.

    Well they are replacing the oil return line. It was dry rotted and cracked. Since it wasnt caused from they swapping out my block but they should have seen it and fixed it they said they will split the bill with me...can't complain to much I guess....I just want it back so I can finish breaking it in!!
