The BAE turbo does the same thing and I've got one in at the moment
thats burning oil.

Eh, WHAT?! Number 1, diesel engines don't produce vacuum because Number
2, they don't have throttle plates. Number 3 what difference does the
type of fuel make to the intake manifold "clogging up"?! Diesels by
their nature are all injection and TDI's are direct injection! The fuel
goes into the cylinders and nowhere else! They're suited to turbos
because of the much higher compression and associatedexhaust gas
expansion after the combustion chamber. ALL petrol turbo engines blow
through the throttle plates, and most have a dump valve (or blow-off
valve as you guys call them).

Renault made 4 version sof the PRV turbo but apart from the basic block,
everything was changed.
