Default Thanks

RRFPR~ I didn't have my fuel pressure gauge so this is speculation, but I believe that I stuck the injectors open due to sky high fuel pressure. Which in turn dump fuel into the cylinders washing the walls of the cylinders of oil and letting the fuel run in to the oil pan and true out the engine and turbo.

ASR turbo install~ The bushings on my turbo (not being a ball bearing type) are very susceptible to oil starvation, even for a short time without oil it will cook a turbo. I pre oiled the turbo by unhooking the coil and cranking the engine over for about 2 minuets. I did let it idle for at lest 15 minuets when I was checking for leaks and such.

Synthetic oil~ well that maybe true I don't know, but others run it and it's turbo approved.

Does anyone know if hooking up the RRFPR backwards will cause high fuel pressure?

I'm doing a compression text soon to see if I did any ring or cylinder wall damage but does anyone know what bad oil pump sound like thru the oil fill tube?
I don't mean to come across as unappreciative or anything, I am grateful all the input, keep it coming and thanks.
