    Stupid Question? :)

    Hey Guys,

    I have a silly question about the GSI breathing system...

    I see a lot of people moaning about oil usage and oil in their Inter cooler Pipes.
    Now i am not sure but could this be causing by the Turbo itself? It sucks the oil from your engine when u boost due to the Breather? Could this cause all the oil in the intercooler and boost pipes?

    Thanks
    Once U Go Fast U Never Go BACK!

    No stupid questions, just stupid people. hehe only kidding

    Anyways, on a healthy turbo you shouldnt be getting any oil in the intercooler/pipes with the breather venting to the atmosphere. spidercoupe I presume you didnt clean out the pipework when you bypassed it?
