    The oil just about fills the sump (give or take a bit), so if the breather is a fair way above the sump gasket then you should be OK

    Is this the pipe from the bottom of the turbo to the block?

    If so let me know how you get on as mines started pissing oil so its one of the jobs to do this weekend because if its a bitch and I can't fix it I won't be taking it to trax

    Does the top gasket need sealant?

    it was this one where it joins onto the block, the bolts were loose and no gasket! eek!

    that one has two small bolts attatching it to the turbo with a small o ring and the big old bolt and o ring to the block andy
