What鈥檚 up fellow st drivers 馃 so as the title states, Iv got this oil leak that I can鈥檛 seem to track down.. Iv got a 2016 focus st, injen intake, turbosmart bov, stratified stage 1 93 oct tune. The other day I noticed my oil was about a quart low. Pulled the belly pan and low and behold, oil everywhere around the turbo.. I did a ton of research on common leak areas and none of them seem to be the root of my problem. I pulled the intake off, it鈥檚 clean, I pulled the hot charge pipe off, also clean, both the feed and return lines were fairly clean, the heaviest amount of oil lied around the bov, so I pulled the bov and that was also clean.. the timing chain cover also appeared to be clean and it looked like it had been sealed with some sort of black sealant rather than a gasket so I鈥檓 not sure if that鈥檚 factory or not.. the car is out of warranty and I鈥檓 trying to avoid the stealership so any help at all is greatly appreciated!

Hi, this is a pretty quiet forum these days. I suggest trying another forum also. Good luck with your issue. Cheers!

Hey I have the full intake and the turbosmart bov haven鈥檛 noticed any leaks yet but I am wondering if you have noticed any loss in boost when you give it some gas. Before I installed the BOV I was getting quite the kick out of just the intake in boost gains. I installed the bov to make it more healthy because the flutter damages your turbo and now I鈥檓 realizing how much more turbo lag there is with the bov on. Any suggestions?
