Should use racewear studs with the M54.

Also, is your valve cover vented to atmosphere? Under boost, if not, the car will burn oil because the crankcase won't accept oil from the turbo drain.

I was just about to question that...

Dramatic seal failure on the turbo, blowing out of the dipstick, leaking valve cover gasket, all kind of sounds like too much crankcase pressure.

Its is vented o atmosphere, always been , thats the first thing I did when I got my hands on the car is to delete ccv completely. I ran a hose out and I can see oil vapour pressure coming out.

do you have a catch can to pull some vacuum in the crankcase? Because of the low tension piston ring set, combustion blowby is stupid on these engines without crankcase vacuum. Even factory, when the CCV goes bad, that's how you get so much oil burn.

I bought two air-tight catchcans off Alibaba for like 70 bucks shipped. throw some stainless steel wool in the "filter" pouch and you're golden. T-off the side between the catch can and the valve cover with another universal PCV valve in reverse (Line pressure pushes it open and vacuum draws it closed), and you can put another, vented catch can somewhere else.

Cheaper than the 60 bucks they want per can, for the same SAME THING on eBay.

EDIT:

My bad, wrong link... Updated.

Bought that catch can.
So here is my plan about this
Im getting aluminum valve cover and im gonna delete ccv out of it.
Then I will weld 1 or 2 6-an bungs and run them to the Oil catch can , then I will use one of my vacuum/boost ports on intake manifold and run it to the other side of the catch can with a 1 way valve or I will steal vacuum pump from my dads volvo )))) He wont know it was even there )))

Kind-off ontopic with turboing, how beneficial would it be to run some sort of aux vacuum pump instead of relying on intake manifold vacuum?

Thats exactly why im stealing my dads vacuum pump for , and then I will power it up using the plug from SAP , I will reprogram so that when the engine is running it will turn on SAP wiring on which will be connected to a vacuum pump and also the brakes maybe.

any reason why the Siemens Deka shorties won't work? I'm not sure how the stock injectors look since I haven't removed them, and I don't know the actual depth of the hole.

That is an auction for 8
