    Just thought I'd share. I was pretty satisfied with the quality since these were taken under my car in a fairly dark garage. Everything set to auto.

    I'm not too happy about my oil leak though. :mad:

    That is quite the oil leak you got going. Hope you get that fixed.

    great pics with the Droid though, was expecting some pics of snow or something though, lol.

    Nice...so do you know where I should look on the turbo to find the leak? It's definitely coming from the top of the engine somewhere because it's falling down my charge pipe from the turbo. And I don't see any oil around my valve cover, so I've narrowed it down to the turbo.

    Check your oil return line in back of the turbo. Looks like a o-ring could be leaking on you.

    Nice pics, considering you took them in a dark place.

    Keep in mind that taking pictures out in daylight without the use of flash is much, much better. I was just pretty impressed with these because all 3 of these pics were with flash in my not so steady hands. You can even see the lines on my finger lol.

    there is no o-ring there, only a paper gasket.

    any blue smoke? stock intake? any catch cans?

    it could be a bunch of things really...take your intake off and see if the compressor fins are clean. If they are soaked your turbo seals are shot. Even if the fins look clean you may still have bad seals if you have excessive shaft play.

    another thing to check, while unlikely, is the gasket on the oil drain/return off of the turbo. stock turbo i assume? send me a PM if you need some help.



    oh and nice pics! :D

    I must be blind, I don't see any of the pictures. I've always been hesitant to use my droid camera because it always comes out to be so grainy onscreen.
