I was thinking the same thing. That scavenge pump was designed to pull oil through the turbo bearings for a very short distance. I don't see how it can do the same thing with all of the extra distance plus the friction of the condenser as well. Also, the condenser tubes are pretty small for oil compared to a Seatrab of Mocal. I think if you are trying to cool the bearings at the turbo it would be easier to install a "T" fitting after the turbo sump tank and install a oneway check valve and an electric oil pump, that can be run independently of the motor running, and then back to the oil tank. This would let you cool the bearings after shutdown and prevent coking of the bearings. Adding a timer to this pump would be wise.
