If he removes the scavenger pump's output at the oil tank (catch the output in a can or something) and run the car BRIEFLY to see if the oil is returning to the tank, you will need to cap off the hole in the oil tank or you will loose all your oil. This sounds like a good suggestion to see if the turbo oil pump is working.
Is it possible that the pump may be working slightly, but not keeping up with the flow once the car is run hard and lots of oil gets pumped thru the turbo. I am wondering how full that turbo oil catch can gets under running conditions.
I noticed it is not vented to atmosphere like the stock OEM catch tank is......does this cause concern?
