alright should just be like a normal egr on any fuel injection car on the road correct? nice dry and look like inside of your exhaust pipe. put it this way u could reach down in that and grab wet "sludge" like s*** out of where the egr sits.

you think this could cause turbo lag and hard starts?

It could also be from getting oil in the intake from the crank case vent. A little oil will mix with the soot from the EGR and make a sludge in your intake.
