ok so i check my breather system its fine, no clog or w.e
im starting to think it is my headgasket even tho my temp has been staying the same...
i am starting to smell a sweat smell im going to check the oil again and see if i see anything if it were coolant in there

now i have been trying to find a damn head gasket
piston size is 83.00mm and the closest i can find for a HG is 83.5 up to 85mm
is that .5 gonna make that much of a difference i am trying to order it tonight alone with new turbo and coolant lines bc the hard line from the block to the turbo seems like its leaking (or atleast there is oil on my turbo itself where the line meets the turbo)
so why not be safe than sorry...

but im still on the edge to just go buy some smaller turbo or w.e a t25 instead of a t28
i just want the car running normal for now, then later i can start wasting money on making it go faster...

any input would be great

so everyone still thinks its the turbo which is letting oil into my exhaust correct?

another question...
i just went outside and checked the oil return line under the turbo...
it feels the line is kinked...
could that be the reason why oil is pushing out my exhaust bc the return line is "blocked"

C'mon man, how'd you miss that? That's something that needs to be fixed before going further.

i swear i checked all lines bc i was gonna buy new ones and figured they were all good...
i lifted the car up, checked more and there was a nice kink in it...
it had to get worse over time bc like i said it started doing it after driving it a few days...

well i had about $600+ money put into parts i was gonna buy...
and so far it looks like it was an $8 hose i got from autozone...
oil was drying up in exhaust...
was very very small smoke (which i think as the exhaust got hotter the oil still inthere was heating up)
Bov is louder, turbo is louder... seems like it runs better...

i kinda didnt wanna tell everyone wat it was bc i feel like a dumbass...
but hey you live and your learn...

Glad to hear you got it fixed. Hopefully this teaches everyone to check everything when they have a problem, no matter how small.

Haha i had so many parts lined up ready to buy
i went outside to check if i should get a new oil return pipe and gasket

Well now lastnight i go to the gas station put gas in
i turn the car off then it wouldn't start... it sounded like it wanted to, but wouldn't go...
i was thinking fuel...
After sitting there for 30 Mins of trying it just randomly started
I think im gonna check out m fuel pressure reg. Bc somehow i think it was flooded?
Any imput

Why do you think it was flooded?

Is this MAF or MAP controlled?
Coolant temp sensor?
IAT sensor?
Fuel pump?

Just a few more ideas...

^^ That wouldn't go away from cooling off, but a possibility.

fuel pump is good, i know that

coolant temp sesnor seems good, was connected, and clean connection...

its the first time it did it,
and like it was wanting to start...
but it just would turn over all the way...

and my maf is just a stock one i believe...
not no z32
