I removed the nylon line...(that went to a "T"...one to turbo...other to oil pressure gauge)

I was a little worried about the line breaking....after seeing a few drips come from it...

so I connect the 4-an line directly to the back of the block..(today)
now I have massive blue smoke from the exhaust when sitting still...
(starts smoking within 2 sec. from idle)

now my question is...
I know I need some sort of restrictor for this td04h 13c...

but how long can I go until I can get one? (before the turbo seals take a hike)
or--find another way to restrict a bit more oil...

because that pin hole adapter & thin nylon line....was acting like a restrictor.

any suggestions?

edit this :

smoke is coming from my exhaust???
would my exhaust side seal of the turbo blown?
or possible rings/seals....<--but that wouldnt be the issue...if I just changed it today & it started doing this...

can too much oil get in the turbo & smoke come from the exhaust without the exhaust seal on the turbo being blown?
haha....answer that

Could be either side, get a restrictor in there ASAP. I wouldn't run it.

My oil return line got kinked, mine smoked like as bitch, when i sorted it the problems slowly went :)

yea right....
this is my only car...I gotta get to work...as well as my girl...
its not a bg deal imo..
exhaust seal on turbo blows...
I use a restrictor
(home made welding technique_)

& it prevents so much oil going into the turbo for it to come out the seal & burn it up...
just how it was with the nylon line...

use to...I could leave the car sittin for about 3-4 minutes...then it would smoke like it does now...
as soon as I removed it./..
it only takes about 30sec.-1 minute to start shootin smoke out..

common sense im just dumpin more oil into the turbo..

I'll have it fixed tomorrow or the next day..

I plan on removing the oil line that connects to the turbo...
then welding around the banjo bolt hole..
leaving a tine tiny hole for oil to pass....(clean it up a bit)
then...go from there...

later I'll get another turbo.,.
if anyone knows how I put together my setup would know my situation..

4an line is way too big for a feed line. so one your dumping too much volume of oil, and two your pushing too high of a pressure.

if the turbo was in good shape, and you fix this soon you still have a fair chance of saving the turbo from ruining it's seals.

if you don't, not only do you risk ruining the turbo but also if the blades of the turbo were to contact the housing you could potentially send a barage of metal shrapnel down into your motor. get ready for a swap :)

don't half ass it, you risk both your turbo and your engine

ok...I ended up removing the banjo bolt with the big hole...(from the water line on the turbo)
& my banjo bolt with the very little tiny hole....fit...(the one that came with the oil line)

I guess I could have done that from the beginning...(but I thought it wouldnt fit...i tried...hmmm...)
but..

now my car seems a bit sluggish to kick in boost...seems slower...
like the oil pressure is holding back....& its not wanting to spool/boost just right...

anybody know about this?
or is it just my imagination....
