ok so incase you didnt know i started my car without the dp on and oil started spitting out from the exhaust side of my turbo.

so i was gonna try an oil restrictor to fix the problem, but while i was waiting for stealthmode to ship it i decided to take the turbo apart yesterday.

the compressor side was perfectly dry, no oil at all. but the exhaust side was a little moist. but there is no shaft play, the wheels spin completely freely.

all i need is like a pic of the inside of the exhaust side, so i can see where the seals are supposed to be. my mom has the digi camera right now, but i will prob take pics later today and post em up.

thanx for the help.

haha oh yea my bad.

its a Garrett T3 .52/48

they are pretty rare they were supposedly only on the 88-89 volvo 700 series, so it might be pretty hard to find a rebuild kit for it

^ i never took it apart. i just clocked it. and its not very hard to put it "back together" from clockin it. just re-tighten the bolts.

my question is tho, the seals are on the compressor side, so are there any more seals which would cause the exhaust side to leak oil? cuz like i said my compressor side is dry and no oil is leakin, but only the exhaust side was leaking.

all the seals go in through the compressor side, but if you look at the center bushing, s #1 there re metal seals #2 that keep the oil in. Even though the pic doesn't show it, there may also be a seal on the shaft itse;f near the exhaust blades. (i forget that part as some do and some don't)

My 16g was leaking oil on the exhaust side but not on the compressor side.
I put a restrictor in (that I made myself 0.062") and it seems fine now. I've put 150 miles on the car so far and it pulls hard at 8psi and haven't seen anymore oil in the DP.

To make the restrictor:

- I found a brass screw (5mm) which I drilled out the middle at 0.062" (1/16th")
- I tapped the inside of an aluminum AN fitting halfway using the same pitch tap as the brass screw.
- I screwed the brass screw into the tapped aluminum fitting all the way to the end of was was tapped.
- I cut the head off of the screw (flush with the end of the fitting). I filed it smooth and rinsed the fitting with water.

took 20 minutes.


I'm going to get the tune redone at 17-18psi this weekend (I had forgotten to take my large wg spring)
