I should have put a 3.6 in

The thing smokes like a pig, and I have narrowed it down to oil drainage issues. I can get it to stop smoking, if I choke the flow to the turbo down to about one quart per minute. Even with the drain line going directly into the sump plate, I still think there is insufficient drainage. As it is Father's Day, I was able to get my 11 year old daughter with the narrow fingers to put a finger in the EGT fitting downstream of the came out covered with oil.

So, we'll try the electric oil pump I have, and see if that fixes it.
BTW, the water injection works great! I can get air temps in the manifold lower than air coming into the air filter.
