Turbo problem on 1600 crossflow

I have just fitted a garrett t25 on my 1600cc crossflow with a side-draught weber twin choke and the engine started really well. The engine is for an Escort mk2. The problem is that when i turned it off i found oil in the intake manifold, probably from the turbo. The turbo I utilised was on a diesel engine. Is there a problem in fitting diesel engine turbos on petrol engines?? Do you think that I just need to change the oil seals in the turbo or there is a bigger problem?

Re: Turbo problem on 1600 crossflow

Hmmm yes sounds like the fuel is sucking up the oil from seal..But I'd try a few things first...Make sure the oil return line to sump is directly down no kinks,atleast 15mm i/d...Some of these turbo's needed oil restrictors especially from Nissan..Install a 1.5mm restrictor in oil line....Another way is to go blow through...Either fill floats with foam or solder small bleed lines into them to equalise pressure..Do this onto of float if they are hollow....
There is NO crankase line to inlet manifold is there..The pcv should be o/k a it has one way valve...Take it out of box [ oil seperater] & check anyway...
It would possibly be cheaper to buy some s/h s13 turbo.. As they are often upgraded...Is there any movement/ play on shaft ?

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!
