Oil Leak fron ABC??

Yea I had went tot he track last night for some race wars thing and I just beat the shit out of my car like 13 runs wich I feel gulity for doing but anyways I went to turn my ABC back down today and there was a bunch of oil that had leaked out of the end of the ABC...?? Im not sure what this means but it has done it once before too... please dont post back unless you really know my problum if any???

P.S dont ask what I ran cause it only went by MPH wich kinda sucked cause there was an RX7 that ran my close to my time im guessing and he was like 10 MPH faster so he won!!!

What turbo are you running? If it has a lot of miles (or some hard miles) on it, it could be blow-by coming from the bearings in the turbo. They are oil lubricated, and when they start to deteriorate, they let oil get past them. Pull your intercooler off and see if there is any oil inside it. Some blow-by is acceptable. Without knowing how much is occuring I can't say whether or not it's a problem.

I'm going on the assumption that the oil was dark like motor oil, correct?

I have the IHI VF 23 turbo but I bought it used from a shop near my house wich probly wasent a good idea.. Yea its like a dark color oil. I have been kind of beating the hell out of it lately so maybe I will take ed easy for a while until I get a new one. I think im gonna buy the SR 40 or pe1820. But hopefully my turbo now is not so bad to where I wont be able to drive it
