Re: Turbo Oil

Hi mate and welcome.

There is no specific place for oil for the turbo. As for the best oil, I suggest you take look at this thread;

Oil advice and recommendations here

Should help. You can also ask Opie Oils for a recommendation. Personally I use Motul 300V 10W 40 but Millers, Sylkolene an others are used by scooby owners. One thing i would say is go for a fully synthetic oil.

Hope that helps.

Re: Turbo Oil

the oil for the turbo is fed from the engine supply.

Re: Turbo Oil

there is no way to tell the level of oil in the turbo seperately from the engine as the tuebo is fed from the main sump.

different shocks have different adjusting points, some are top adjustable others have the adjusters by the hubs.

Re: Turbo Oil

i have only seen the engine oil dipstick, you sure you are not looking at the gearbox dipstick?

check what make your suspension is and search the net for info.
