You don't have to take the cab off to do the turbo? I've seen a handful of installs and up-pipe replacements and all were with the cab on.

Do you really need to lift the cab to take your turbo off?

lol you dont need to lift a cab to swap turbos. What are "upgraded sticks (a lil above stock)"? Where did you drill a hole and see all the oil pour out of? The stack?

Whats your boost gauge doing? You can usually tell if seals/bearings are going because it starts boosting unsmoothly and erratically.

The last owner put in upgraded injectors like 40hp ones

I drilled a hole at the bottom of my exhaust pipe under the stack where it levels out and oil poured out

And i have no boost gauge

Your main concern is the turbo producing a fountain of oil. Don't want it to run away or leave you stranded because you're out of oil
