I found about a quart of oil in my turbo intercooler this weekend. I pulled the complete turbo system off to get a good look at everything. I am going to send the Garrett Turbo to get the seals replaced and see if the turbo needs to be rebuilt. Do you guys think that the turbo is leaking oil or could it be something else.
Thanks

Sounds like you were getting mucho oil blowing through those seals. I think Garrett has an upgrade turbine available for that unit (you should ask, particularly if they are doing an overhaul anyway).

You should check the oil lines for signs of any blockage, too (particularly the oil return line).

Sorry for your pain. How many miles did you have on the turbo rig?
