Cooler is for oil return cooling between the scavenge pump and turbo. I don't really need it 95% of the time. It helps at the track.

H2, no check ball in the feed circuit. The smoke is a symptom, at start up and across the rev range.

I have a sleeve bearing turbo; different requirements than a ball bearing turbo. I appreciate the vids, but it doesn't really help to quantify flow rates by looking at the oil pouring out of a turbo. kind of like guessing the air pressure in a tire by looking.

What i need to determine is: does my pump pump more or less on a time rate basis than I can deliver to the turbo? And, if not, why?
