uuggg. i dont think my turbo is happy!!!!!!!!!!!
im pissed, i hate subi uses synthetic oil now from the factory! it gives the motor and parts no time to break in. i didnt feel like going back to regular and then back to synthetic. So i gave the motor an oil change at about 200-300 miles to get rid of all the metal flakes. at 30 miles i removed the PCV valve and all the lines going to the inlet for the valve and crank vents. Only lines now are 2-port, bpv, and evap, all have zero oil in them.
To clear that up, from 30 miles oil has NO way of getting into the inlet, turbo, TMIC, or manifold!
however every time i pop the TMIC oil is in the compressor, TMIC, and TB coupling. when i installed my DP last week the turbine was bone dry so a seal or something on the compressor side must be leaking.
the oil is very very very small. maybe 3-4 drops around the turbo to TMIC connection and 2-3 drops in the TB coupling. im running redline 5w30 just like my 09 that had ZERO oil anywhere. im thinking 5w40 might be a quick fix no?
