My oil scavenge pump has been lagging behind the oil coming from my turbo. I am leaning towards that as the cause for my turbo seal failure.

I added this line as an additional gravity drain in case my scavenge does not keep up. With the vent gone from the original tank it changes the system slightly and I have been unable to pinpoint the problem. I rebuilt my scavenge (seals only) which did not fix the problem. If I had a good "donor" pump I could tell for sure, but its not that easy to find meaning borrow. This should help for that additional oil that has no home except out my exhaust. Not an option!!

This is just a safety precaution.
