Notes on the ASR turbo. I have one, never installed but I got all sorts of notes to follow from Alan (ASR as$hole)

1. The return fitting on the turbo he uses MUST be facing straight down. If the oil builds up at all he said it will ruin the seals.

2. Sinthetic oil will seep through the seals. I don't know why.

3. You have to run the car AT IDEL for at least 10 min. without
revving the car at all. Just touch on the key and don't hit the gas.
If you rev it, and spin the turbo with the seals dry it is toast.
