Small Update

I have it all buttoned up. Sure looks nice all clean - well cleaner.

There is a refurbished waste gate ( Cole )

I cranked the car without the fuel pump relays. Just to make sure i had oil pressure before starting.

Put in the relays and gave it a try - nothing.

I looked under the car and I could see oil is coming out of the turbo, dripping down on the j pipe - arrgh. it seems it is coming from the oil inlet on the turbo???

I pulled the plug on the plunger, to try and make the fuel pumps run and insure that the engine actually gets fuel.

I tried again, just to see if could fire up. It gave a few puffs. I guess only from one cylinder.

I decided to stop, since it seems something is not right and I don't have more time today. Gotta get up real early for work tomorrow.

Before closing for the night. I had another look underneath. . It is quite a bit of oil leaking out.

Any guess on what causes this?

I know it's not much to go from. I'll dig in further ASAP
