STS rear mount boost kit spitting out oil!! HELP!!!!
Hey guys, i was wondering if anyone has an idea about this. i recently installed the sts rear mount turbo to my 03 z and ran it with the turboxs piggy pack unit which was tuned already for 8.5psi. i haven't done a tuneup yet but i drove the car and it drove fine with no issues but its spitting out a lot of oil from the exhaust and i noticed it became a bit foamy as well.i don't know if i was running lean or rich as i do not have the gauges installed yet.is this just the turbo that is installed in the back of my car's exhaust system or is it my motor?
also there was smoke coming out of the right side of the hood and smelled pretty bad of burning oil or something similar to oil. i personally don't know if this has something to do with the oil that showed up in the exhaust as someone looked at it quickly and said its the valve cover gasket leaking and the oil is getting on the manifold.
cars internals are stock and it has 160 k on it .the kit has no boost controller and is running 8.5 psi.
Thanks in advance
