Porsche 993 Turbo Oil Feed Upgrade

01 Apr 2016

Porsche 993 Turbo Oil Feed Upgrade is now available @AWMotorSport

911-turbo-993

We have come across a few people who have unfortunately gone to great lengths to stop a smoking issue on start up on various 993 Turbos. These have even included replacing the Turbo units at a great cost.

This week we have had an example of this issue and in this case it was the oil feed pipes causing the fault. Here we explain the cause and the remedy we carried out. This could sometimes be a better and more affordable place to start.

As you can see, this is a great example of a 993 Turbo and one we are proud to take care of as it is always increasing in value day to day. This car is only used on nice weekends and tends to sit for long periods of time. Due to this, when the car is not running oil tends to track down the oil feed pipe filling the turbo and exhaust. Not only does this cause a great amount of smoking on start up which will continue until all the sitting oil is burnt off but can also cause damage to the catalytic converters and lambda O2 sensors.

Here shows the original oil feed pipe after it has been disconnected from the turbo.

This shows the original pipe and the difference in the oil feed upgrade kit from FVD with the check valves inline.

The FVD kit is a modified oil feed pipe which includes a check valve only allowing oil to feed the turbo when the car is running and the pressure is increased in the system. This is a modification Porsche have done themselves on the 996 Turbo once the problem was recognized. Once these oil feed upgraded pipes including the check valves are fitted, oil will no longer be able to enter the turbo or exhaust system when the engine has been switched off.
