I repaired the pump, reinstalled it and started the engine and got smoked out. Wow what a smokescreen. Took off the pump to look, looked good, removed the line on the drip tank and it seemed to be sucking but when I put the line in a big cup and drained into same cup the turbo drain overwhelmed the pump. Look at the video.

As I let the engine run up to temp, I would empty into the oil tank with a oil jug occasionally to let the pump catch up.
So the scavenge pump doesn't work well enough.
This brings me to a fork in the road.
A) do I get a new scavenge pump?
B) do I just get another Garrett chra and use this pump? It would be fine with the Garrett I'm sure.
I want to try this turbo out but it seems the odds are stacking against me.
Unless someone has an extra pump they'd let me try out for a while.

What are the opinions for me?
Should I source another pump?
Would my pump even work with a Garrett?
Should I just quit screwing around and get the Garrett chra and be done? I already know I'm happy with it.
I just don't know.
Turbo powa!
