I just removed my compressor housing from my turbo and noticed there is a small amount of oil in the compressor housing. Very small

But There was no oil in the piping, not a stain of it. confused.gif

I did not notice any on the exhaust side although I never removed the downpipe. But I didn't notice any blue smoke from the exhaust nor did I notice and significant amount of oil lost on the Dipstick.

Turbo has no shaft play.

I was boosting on this turbo for about 3 hours @ 15 psi. So if the seals were shot on the turbo wouldn't that be enough time and enough boost to blow the oil out in the piping?

Maybe to much oil pressure?

I am not using a restrictor but should not need one because my oil feed is from the Head and I am using a 1/8th feed line.

Whats your thoughts?

don't worry about it until your blowing smoke, That is my thoughts on this.

No smoke = all is okay (and no shaft play).

If one is worried, then get it rebuilt (I am guessing t3 or t25, right??)
