I would say that this is a definite possibility, as it was not running until yesterday since June 6. And, it was sitting outside the repair shop for almost 6 weeks while I was waiting for the turbo to be checked out, repaired and sent back, then another four weeks to get the IP&T oil lines (2 weeks due to filter scarcity, then another 2 weeks due to Hurricane Sandy).

Of course, I would very much prefer this to be the cause. I will keep a close eye on it for the next few days and if it continues I will return to the repair shop. These guys came highly recommended, and are incredibly busy with a lot of really nice cars (always a good sign), so I have confidence that the work was done properly. That said, that does not mean that the rebuilt motor couldn't be the problem.
