I keep the oil level at the lower mark when warm and running. The problem is worse with the original oil return tank (I have the aftermarket header/tank as well). the original tank is twice the size and extends much futher past the inlet on the top. Going through a left handed turn the problem is much worse as I believe the oil in the (full) tank is pushed back up into the turbo. Plumes of smoke again.

There is oil in the intake not as bad as I would think. Mostly pooled at the transitions of the turbo to intercooler pipe.

I am looking into getting a restrictor to reduce the flow of oil to the turbo sine I think the return pump cant keep up.

Im not sure either about the seals in the turbo .. though they arent normal rubber/silicon type seals in there. I have rebuilt a few garret turbos myself.
