Arrrgggg! Somewhat discouraged right now

A couple weeks ago, I put the rebuild kit into the turbo because I was loosing oil into the compressor side and cleaned everything up while it was out. Well, i drove it for a couple hundred miles and it looked like no more leak. That is until I pull the trailer 1100 miles to Corpus Chisti TX. I was bucking a head wind the entire way and noticed in San Antonio that I had oil weeping from the CAC boot.
Well, I didn't worry about it while I was in Texas but now that I am back in Colorado, yes, it is back to consuming about 1 qt / 1k miles. So between that, injector stiction, passenger ball joints - I am throwing rocks at her.

CAC boot oil seepage is most likely from the CCV system. No big deal - clean or replace the CAC boots. I went w/ boots from Dieselsite and also installed the ccv filter
