    Sorry for the lack of updates, I've been in the middle of doing a blower/meth on my Corvette and that's why I haven't been around to update the thread.
    So anyway the cheap ebay turbo made way more than I thought it would. 353awhp/390awtq. Unfortunately as some of you all guessed, the compressor side seal blew out about twenty minutes after getting off the dyno and had to add a quart every 50 miles on the way home.
    So I went ahead and ordered a Blouch 440xt with a 10cm turbine housing which I installed yesterday. So now I'll be taking another trip up to Atlanta soon.

    I no longer care about the cheap ebay turbo. Start a thread on your Vette with a blower and meth!!!

    Nothing special, just an age old tale of a man wasting a lot of money.

    Latest update as of last night: There is still a lot of oil left in the intercooler from the last turbo and there's a lot more oil in there than you would think, and then last night after a few pulls I had the car idling in the driveway when it started running bad and thru a cylinder 2 misfire, so I think I may have burned a plug. So I'll be going home tonight to do that super easy spark plug job

    So anyway, plugs are changed but the oil blowby/leaking is still bad. Thinking I may need some type of crankcase breather or catch can for the blowby and I still cant figure out where the oil on the back side of the engine is coming from (unless there's just that much leaking out of the intercooler.
    Any input would be appreciated, this thing is kicking my butt right now.

    If it's leaking out of the intercooler than the intercooler is not sealed. Depends on where the oil is. If it is truely the back of the motor and not on top my guess is the rear main seal. Common issue on Subaru's.

    I know the intercooler is not a tight seal but it still should not be getting this much oil in it and as for the oil in the back, it's not the rear main, it's all over the fire wall and brake fluid reservoir and only sprays when under boost. I replaced the turbo drain tube and replaced all the banjo fitting crush washers just to be on the safe side.

    The inter cooler should be sealed. As in regardless of oil is coming in it should not be leaking out. Catch can is generally a mod I suggest for even stock and N/A cars. If you have oil all over the firewall maybe your crankcase tube to the PCV valve is loose or cracked.

    That's sort of what I was leaning towards, it's just a hard one to diagnose because it only happens under boost so I can't physically see it coming out.

    Also, how much oil do you think could come out of that tube under boost. Because it's a lot of oil.

    Get some UV dye and a UV light to track down the main leak.

    Really looking like I need a catch can or air oil separator, I just have way too much crankcase pressure. Yesterday I pulled my oil fill cap and put a rag over it to keep the spray down, then went and put about 25 miles on the car in and out of boost, now there's no more blow by or leaks on the back of the engine or anymore smoke screen.

    So what are your thoughts on that?

    Alright, hooked a catch can up to the pcv line headed back to the intake tube and plugged that port, this seems to have fixed that problem. Now I'm waiting for my Perrin intake tube so the factory one stops flexing, it was also quite deteriorated.
