What is the idle speed of your engine?

Have you inspected the breather hose from the engine to tank, tank to air filter, looking for obstructions?
Jim2, if he can blow oil thru the turbo 'seals' at approx 2 psi pressure, there has to be something seriously wrong with the build/tolerances. Should not happen. I wonder if there is a problem with the shaft - but we can only guess from here. A rebuild specialist would have to take a look.
SBK, I will email my turbo guy who did my 7006 rebuild. this required replacing the shaft, once he opened it. I will ask for his helicopter view of where the issue may be.
You are prob just as well off to use the guy in perth, but the postage to NZ is prob about the same.
