just heard from LoveFab,

they say the leakdown test yeilded the same results as when they started the project.
he says this means it was absolutly not an issue from tuning and "fuel wash"

even though there was definitely fuel and metallic in the oil.

I am not placing blame on anyone yet... i just want to get some answers.

I find it coincidental just after a few miles with the new turbos that the oil pump fails... when it was find for the last 8k miles.
and it had nothing to do with 4 weeks of bad tuning and coils popping off on the dyno and drilling two holes into my oil pan (with it still on the car)


If anyone has any technical input to help me understand what could have happened... please let me know

Sure wish I would have made the first pic in this thread... Here's mine from the same day...
Don't know if y'all have seen this video. Ran into Casey during one of the cruises in Austin and found out about this video. Anybody else can find themselves in this video?

Kyle - appears it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure this one out.....drilling into oil pan while installed, metal shavings, & then oil pump failure

Kyle just Scanned through this Thread and it sucks the issues you are having. If I can be of any help let me know. I think going 3 bar map and speed density tune is the only way to go with your set up for sure. Its a long process to tune but isnt anything for a good tuner.
