does the manual say anything about installing pumps backwards? I would think that would burn up the turbo as well

You are speaking of a turbo when I'm talking about a whole build. Where are my tie rods I paid for? I have emails also you saying that you were going to rebuild the turbo. Not return it to BW, maybe to use on another car. And I have said that I have not returned the turbo. But it went to the money I have spent repairing your mess.

And I have spoken to BW techs and other REAL TURBO specialist. And they don't recommend restrictors but it can be done if sized at 062 and larger. All cars don't make the same pressure so even have a big pump and line won't help most of the times.

Not wishing anymore damage upon anyone here, but if something does happen to butters turbo its going to be a big finger pointing game.

Just a FYI, There is no external restrictor installed in butters car, never was one. Obviously the smoking issue was solved because the scavenge system is pumping correctly and is adequate for the amount of oil coming through the turbo cartridge.

With all the RX bashing, at what point is it more beneficial to just let these posts go unresponded to and focus efforts on doing things properly so that people can start having a reason to post positive comments?

But see that's the thing, the more threads like this the better. I say that because then and only then will more and more people see what RX is really about. So many threads like this pop up on a regular basis. Then Tracy chimes in on how he's so stressed because he works a thousand hours a week and so on and so on. Once again, cry me a river.

How is it that some vendors can continuously have awesome reputations like JRE, ADM Performance and LPE while vendors like RX continuously receive the negative feedback like they do? I will tell you why. Because it all boils down to the one big bad apple in the barrel. And of course we all know who that bad apple is.

I speak nothing but the truth and this section of the forum is the concrete truth. Just read through the bad RX threads. The truth is there in black and white.

I think what dorfmac meant was that instead of the vendor coming into all these threads and starting a shit-throwing fest, he should just worry about doing his work and letting his reputation build from a happy customer base.

Hey everyone I have with the help of Matt, GretchenGotGrowl, and a few others revamped my oil return. I don't have clearance issues anymore. Here is a picture of the return set up I am running now. Its from a SS turbo build all I did was have some of the parts custom made. I will post a picture of mine soon.

This is the set up I copied but made adjustments to it for my car. But basically the same thing.




These are some of the parts used before I installed it all. Along with the new Meth controller I needed since it was installed wrong and always staying on even after the car is shut off. Also new vacuum lines since my old ones were filled with oil from the BOV spitting oil into them. And the lines that went into the wastegates as I'm running spring pressure as I can't control boost with the controller I paid for.

Johnny I have thought about coming down to your shop since yall right here but can never make it. I was looking for advice and to see if yall offered any tuning help for the LLT's while on the dyno. I been over there before with the ACE5 car club once.
