Check that out before assuming it is correct.
Why did you get your turbo rebuilt in the first place? Maybe whatever caused that one to fail is still an issue?
Hi Jeff,
The PO deleted the smog stuff leaving the air nozzles in place and plug them up with something like JB weld. The tip of one of the nozzles broke off and went through the turbo damaging the turbine wheel and then the turbo.
I have since deleted them and replaced them with parts from pelican.

So if the ball gets stuck can that let too much oil through to the turbo. The flow through the drip tank appears normal compared to the others I have seen. The rebuilder is saying there could be too much oil pressure going to the turbo???
