Leaking Turbo

Hi guys

i took the air inlet pipe of the turbo to see if there was any loose in the turbo. It seems all tight, yet there was a noticeable amount of oil that came out of it. Will running it like this eventually damage the turbo?
would this be the seal kit i would need?

94-97Turbo

on the road the truck pulls hard anything over 2000 rpm you can really hear and feel the turbo working.

Thanks

That is correct. Might ask about a few other "must haves" while you're talking to him .

well how much oil is in the pipes...PSD...especially 7.3's are notorious for oil in the intake...you gotta remember the crankcase breather vents back into the intake and the 7.3 is notorious for a certain amount of blowby so it could just be that the oil is normal...i know when i take my IC tubes off or intake off i get a fair amount of oil in there...thats why they came up with the Crank case vent mod. This mod just has you take the breather (the rectangular box thing) off the driverside valve cover and flip it around so the vent to is facing backward and then run a 3/4 hose to the back of the truck. then plug the intake with a 3/4 plug. Theoretically it won't hurt anything cause like i said these engines are almost supposed to have oil in the intake. so unless its like multiple quarts i would just do the CCV mod and see if that changes anything...if not then i would say its the turbo. Taking these turbos off is a pain so try and make sure it is the turbo before you tear into it.

When i took the orange hose off there was a few drops that came running out of the turbo houseing and the orange tube was oily inside. Nothing too excess.

thanks for the input. When you say box are you reffering to the factory air intake box? the line to the back of the truck is just like a vent hose? i mean it does not go into anything at the back correct? Hopefully i can find a link with pics for the crankcase mod as i don't see the whole picture. I know on my race car i had to eliminate the pcv and run 2 open breathers in the valve covers or the pcv would syphon the oil out and back into the carb.

no no the box im refering to is a small rectangular box which is actually screwed down to the driver's side valve cover right under/behind the turbo inlet pipe. Let me see if i can find the page on mods. Here give this a try...
