So Juan, am I correct in reading that you had enough oil back up in the turbo that it smoked out the tail pipe or got past the compressor shaft seal? Was it ONLY under extreme acceleration during drag runs?

I'm building a gravity drain system on my 993 right now and I'm still concerned that it won't work. When I posted about this a couple months ago I got mixed reviews, some said it worked fine, others said not at all. Nothing clear between them.
