I hadn't imagined boost pushing into the drain either, since oil pressure is always way higher than boost (usually). I suggested capping the turbo inlet and outlet and pressure testing the turbo, listening at the oil pan and oil filler for the tell tale bong hit sound of pressure bleeding into the crank case through the drain. A couple pipe caps, couple big worm clamps, and a tire stem should build an easy boost leak/turbo pressure tester. I usually use a smoke tester at work but that only pushes about 1 psi and wouldn't do any good for this situation. I was still suspicious of some kind of wrong hose routing letting boost into the crank case.

Damn thats a good check. It would be interesting to take it even further and actually start the car. That wsy you can try to overcome the cartridge oil pressure with ~12 psi pumped into the capped compressor housing. If the dipstick pops you have your culprit

I thought I explained it fairly well. Just google how to build a boost leak tester and apply that to JUST the compressor side of the turbo.

If those Evo and VW guys can do it, anyone can do it. Just put that on one side of the turbo cold side and cap the other side of the turbo, apply 15 psi to the turbo, listen for your engine taking a big bong rip in the oil pan or listen for hissing from the oil fill cap.

I think he's just super worried (like me) about doing something wrong and potentially making things worse. The 'normal' stuff we do all the time on 'regular' cars is nothing, this seems daunting at least in my opinion because if I break something I will be insanely mad at myself.

I understand, but it's not that weird of a car. Just treat the different parts as separate systems. The blowy parts, the spinny parts, and the farty bits. Take it one section at a time and consult the internet frequently. Maybe stay at a Holiday Inn Express.

why dont you simply disconnect the vacumn hose to the AC which will stop the turbo from boosting and see how it runs
