I have 2 of these turbos now, and both of them burn a little oil and make the nozzle sticky after a fairly short time. i made the bushing in the pic, and am fairly confident it won't move. i have a .003 shrink fit on it. made of 4140 steel so the oil ring shouldn't wear in as easy.

good fix and try and run it? or not risk it?

i never did try and move it.

it's on the truck now, and so far so good. took it for like an hour drive and nothing exploded! now i just hope it controls the oil and doesn't make the nozzle all sticky. if there's more interest, i may post a pic of what it looked like i just took off the truck. the 6.7 guys complain that it's all the egr stuff that makes them stick. i wonder if it's more the lack of oil control.
