X2 John,
You will see I was careful to say high & low marks!!

It is surprising that Roy has not chimed in as he has strong views on oil levels.

I do think though that running at the high mark on some motors could restrict the turbo drain, causing the turbo bearing cavity to flood & if the turbo has an oil seal issue, it could allow oil into the inlet & contribute to a run away.
