Not sure if I can be of any help...

The fact that the problem showed up after sitting for six months is likely a coincidence.

Turbo seals are metal and simple in design, little to go wrong with them unless the turbo bearings fail, or are very high mileage. Sitting for long periods without use will make no difference to them what so ever.

What weight oil are you running? (Is it possible that it got changed to an incorrect, very light weight? )

Oil thins when it gets well used. Has it been neglected? Roughly how many miles since last change.

Tinker makes a good suggestion. Also consider getting a better look at the metal line from your steel braided line which goes forward to the pump and ensure it is not damaged. You might take the left tire off to do this. While you are at it, have a look at (or feel) the discharge line leading from the pump, over the transaxle, then onto the tank on the right side of the car.

If you need some pictures just ask, though the 94s might be somwhat different than the old beater I have here.
