No. But i am assuming immediate loss of oil pressure and shortly after, engine destruction.

 

Or are you more referring to a concern like relief valve leaking?

    I put a Nissan VRS kit through it, started leaking oil from both front cam shaft seals, rear main is leaking slightly (I took the motor and box back out yesterday) and the turbo seal is f**ked on the exhaust side 

    wondering if relative 

    thanks for replying

    Ahh ok so pump still working but you're thinking no longer regulating oil pressure and it's wayyy too high, like relief valve seized? While its not great, the stock oilpressure dash gauge should be accurate enough to tell you if thats happened.

  • Ah it’s too late now

    but it looks like a slide in the oil pump was jammed right where the spring and bolt are 

    it’s f**ked the lot now

    the biggest lesson I’ve learnt during this build is, everyone offers opinions, you go with it because they are “mechanics” I was outnumbered now I’ve caused thousands of dollars in damage, on new parts because I didn’t listen to my instinct and now I’ve gotta fork it out to fix it 

    everyone pretty much now is like I told u so which is what f**ks me off the most 

    I’m 5000 steps behind where I started 

    so take responsibility for your own shit and you won’t end up like me, don’t try and let people tell u how to do your shit, if u make the decision stick to it, I would’ve been better off if i did 

    V8 boys know f**king nothing about turbos at all

    bad news, sorry to hear that..

    but yeah the idea is, listen to people, filter what they say, decide whether it's worth taking on board or not. Have had that a few times on here; ppl like 'why'd you ask if you're just going to do what you want anyway??/"

    cos you didn't make a rational or convincing enough argument....so it was dismissed.
