[Vwdiesel] Quantum theory for weird oil pressure?

I am thankful to you, Mark, for your oil pressure test.  I am still reluctant 
to "stall" the turbo as suggested even if it is lubed, as the turbine will 
still be in the exhaust flow.  With a stalled turbine there would potentially be 
srious back pressure, and highly elevetad EGT's.  I did have one intercooler 
hose blow out once, and noticed that without boost, my EGT's were a fair 
amount hotter.  Not enough air for the fuel?  Too much back pressure?  Don't want 
to subject that engine to any extra stress, especially if it is bearings.
Anyway two out of two turbos behave the same, odds are good that the problem 
is elsewhere, probably bearings.  I think I'll go out and "get greasy".
