I have had problems with this o-ring since I have had the car, I use a gob of silicone on it to make a tight seal, it may well be the problem. Last time this had a leak in it the car wouldn't idle...

94 911 Turbo Bogging down under boost, black smoke

I just replaced a rebuilt turbocharger and she ran fine for a week, then started bogging down and choking under boost, with a cloud of black smoke. Fine if not under boost, but then what fun is...

Definitely oil smoke, only under boost WHEN WARMED UP, no fuel smell, very limited driving like this (when cars behind me are skidding off the road due to the smoke I try to stay off the main roads!)

Sorry if I wasn't clear, I have had the turbo rebuilt and the problem persists. Unless the new seals are faulty, it must be something else.

Pics of parts in question

I have a pic of the mystery cannister between the turbo and crankcase (disconnected from turbo) and the pump-like thing mounted to the exhaust manifold that is not connected. Anyone know what these...

I'm starting to suspect that I'm SUPPOSED TO have a pump to drive the oil return from the turbo and it was bypassed by the previous owner. There is what looks like a pump mounted on a nearby exhaust...

Okay so I'll admit I was an idiot, I found the oil feed, it isn't visible from below and I somehow forgot taking it off and putting it back on (must be all the burning oil fumes I've inhaled!)

So...

A turbo seal sounds like the ticket, thanks for the advice. The 94 is a single turbo with twin exhaust, my understanding is that the left is the turbo wastegate. At idle only the right tailpipe...
