ausdrift posted a topic in Forced Induction PerformanceSo I'm half way through installing a FMIC kit yesterday and decide that its a great time to check on my turbo while I have all the piping off. I take much of the piping off and find oil in some of the pipes. It isn't all the way through though thankfully. It seems to go from the turbo to only the first arm of piping, so not even to the section that dives down to the IC through the engine bay floor yet (so oil for about 40cm from turbo). I checked the turbo itself and there was a little oil on the inlet. I checked the wheel for movement and there is no real side to side movement, but a little back and forth, maybe 1mm. It feels to me like the condition of the turbo wheel/bearings etc is ok, but the oil leak suggests the rear seal is worn. Am I on the money here? The car runs factory boost (for now), has done 125,000kms, and it runs fine. So, what do we think the problem is, and importantly how long would you expect it to last? Also if I leave it as is what will be the consequences? Will it just get more and more smokey as the seals wear out more, or worse? thanks
