on3 first startup question

Just got my on3 kit running with a base tune and am using a pte 6765 turbo. Question I have is should the turbo be spinning even when the car idles down to like below 1000 rpm? It spins when I first start it and when it is idling higher but slows and stops when it idles down really low. Is the oil feed too small or what? Any help greatly appreciated thanks

Yes the turbo should be spinning while at idle, I would make sure the feed line is directly in the top of the turbo and that the feed line isn't kinked anywhere

Mine did the same thing . the bearings are packed with a thick grease when new. once the car worms up and pushes the clean oil from your motor into the turbo .It then should spin freely at idel. As long as everything else is set up correctly.
Here are 2 vids of my first start up and one after about a hr of ideling.
My car idels at around 800rpm 2nd vid i never touched the gas
