Technician: Wayne, Journeyman replied 1 year ago

HI

I seem to think you still have back pressure

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
No restrictions that I can see . how would it restrict oil return ? there is an elbow then a nut which feeds directly into pan ! Nothing there to restrict oil return . unless crankcase pressure is high hindering oil return ! After removing filter engine performance is fantastic , no hesitation when power applied .
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
teaspoon of oil in breather tube cannister after 10,000 miles
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
overnight idling no oil on floor from breather tube .
Technician: Wayne, Journeyman replied 1 year ago

Thank you for that

there can be too much pressure

Do a simple test, run a line from the turbo return line

to the oil fill , see if it still leaks
