    Gen tt

    problem car is smoking a blue gray smells like oil. my system is vented (sarges way),drain line not obstructed,amount of oil going into turbos in 15 secs. a hair over 8ozs. I was hoping martin from aussieland could help out on what size oil restrictors my GTO LS-2 GenTwin Turbo needs. and maybe seal replacement. anyone can jump in on this I need help. maybe a upgrade

    use a nitrous jet for a restrictor in the oil feed line. No smaller than .050 might wanna try starting with a large one and work your way down. A good size to start would be .080 or .090.

    LOL this is funny hell i have seen both high dollar and cheap turbos LEAK,spend $2000 on a turbo or ebay turbos they all leak,are you running stock oil pump or aftermarket? the kkR turbos are ball bearing they should not need alot of oil,some of the ebay restricters work great and they are billet aluminum and are not expensive,I have even used solder to fill the inlet hole,sounds crude but it works, then drill hole for oil.id start at 1/8 drill bit.have you checked the oil drains back to the motor?

    If they are under warrantee send them back,from my experience all turbos leak after some useage,just the nature of the BEAST..

    Cool gmmad

    hey guy i didn't think about them being bushings humm i might have to just live with it, but i really don't know 4 sure what type bush or ball is in there. the compressor is stamped garret, and the dealer from aussie land went under that's GENTT they don't answer e-mails so the only way to find out if they r ball or bush is disassemble them, shit i'll be w/o my car 4 awhile

    the KKR's they used are cheap Chinese turbo's which I dont think they use any more
    I know there have been a far few issues with seals
    but as pocket rocket said they are stamped garrett so not shore if the export version had different turbo's

    thanx mate
