Remove and clean the turbo housings out. Don't take it apart..do best you can with some brake clean. clean out your plenum and boost pipe. Sat to long as it bleed back into the turbo from main galleys. Fills the bearing housing full of oil and eventually starts to seep. Being low doesn't always eliminate the issue. I keep my window half full and start the bike every 10 days and seems to work keeping the oil out of the turbo and plenum. :thumbup

Not sure same issue.


Bike sat for years. Has just less than 20k miles. I have owned since new.
Now New Turbo, injectors cleaning, oil pump and rv upgrade, valve oil seals (Viton).
Cleaned out exhaust.

Now new, clean oil spits out exhaust tips, and drips at exhaust pipe seam. Like a drip every 3 seconds.
Bummed.

Don't like compression test
1=65
2=54
3=48
4=65

leakdown test was like 75% every cyl.
