PB, this is not an oil less turbo. This Comp turbo uses a feed and drain line like most turbos out there now. We would not recommend an oil-free turbo for a street bike, anyway. The Comp oil free turbos are being tested now and until they are entirely proven, I would only use them in situations where the turbo is too low to drain properly, or mounted sideways or some other kind of silly situation. For now, I would stick with what I know works and only "test" new things on my own bikes . . .:whistle:

Comp turbos are available in many configurations, such as standard bronze bearings, triple ceramic bearings, billet compressor wheels, standard oil lubricated and oil less, the oil less get their name due to the fact they do not require oil from the engine to lubricate the bearings and seals. However they are lubricated, the center cartridge has a lubricant in it, however it is only rated to 700 degrees, so water cooling the cartridge becomes necessary, which for some applications is far easier and more reliable then trusting a scavenge pump to return the oil from a low hanging turbo back into the engine.
