Engine is back in.

Just finished putting the engine back in the car. (first time for me)
I did connect all oil lines. have put in new oil and tested fuel and fuel pressure.
All looks fine so far. But I still have a question that I did not found on the forum yet:
I did not attached the oil outlet line ( behind the oil catch tank) I cranked the engine a few times ( total maybe mmm less then a min.) after 20 to 30 sec there was a little oil coming out from the oil catch tank but it was not much (very little) more like dripping or bit more. is this normal or should there be more oil exiting the oil catch can while I'm only cranking the engine?
To be clear this is without the engine running so no fuel and ignition. Thanks

You need to crank it longer than 20-30 seconds to get much oil to flow out of there initially following assembly (not necessarily longer than 30 seconds at a time but quick, short burst of cranking). Try that and see what you get.

Will try tomorrow and let you know. I was afraid that the engine did not get any oil.
I saw my oil gauge going down while cranking. I'm still waiting for scavenge pump seal kit but I thought it was not bad to put some oil true the system?

The oil gauge is totally useless at this point in time. The pressure gauge one is the one that count.

Yeh 930's aren't like say an American V8, that when you crank it, the positive displacement oil pump sucks up the oil from the oil pan, and gets you almost instant oil pressure and flow.

Our 930's are basically a dry sump oiling system, so until the engine is running there is precious little oil sitting in the engine case for the 3 stage oil pump to pick up, so you just don't get much flow.

Oh and about your first time fire up...have a fire extinguisher handy, you just can't be too careful, our fuel systems operate at a very high pressure.

Best of luck!!

Mark

+1,

Have someone else crank the car and you watch what is going on in the engine bay.

BTDT, as a result of too many cook in the kitchen, one of the oil line to the chain cover was loose and oil was pissing out. Since the buck stop with me, I blame my helper and thigh the joint

I cranked the engine for about 20 seconds
made a little low quality vid. I'm not using a High Torque starter motor but my OEM rebuild one.
I didn't open the engine when it was out, Just a few mods.

Here's the vid

Not too sure what you are expecting out of that pipe???

Button her up and see what the Oil Pressure Reads...

Oil pressure stays at 5 bar. When I take the pressure sender wire and connect it to ground it goes to 0. I ordered a new pressure sender because it was never working
Might have to wait another week but this time I like to have it all working before running the car.

The starter is only good for 250 - 300 RPM's max. So probably not much oil flow until the engine catches. Did you get your S200sx_RS_56 Turbocharger installed?

The object of the exercise is to get some oil in the supply line. As others have said, 200-300 rpm won't give you a torrent of oil but on the other hand the turbo isn't spinning at 120,000 rpm at idle either. When you see oil you are good to go.

Yes I did. Together with aem water meth, aem afr, turbosmart dual stage boost controller. I have an intercooler to but I'm installing this one later. Hope to get the seals for my scavenge pum by the weekend. It had a leak at the shaft bearing. Need to be sure all is good in there.

I would be interested in how the BW turbo responds. I have a GT3582 on my 3.0 liter turbo, but it is laggy for this size motor. It make great top end power, but I miss the response of the K27 I had prior to going EFI. I should have gone with a GT3076.
