Turbo leaking?

I noticed oil today when i took off my intake tube coming off the turbo going into my intercooler. Also ive been seeing blueish smoke coming out my exhaust (turbo back muffler only 5ich) and oil build up around the tip.... is this normal or will i need a new turbo?

The oil inside the tube is from the accumulated buildup from the crankcase ventilation that is routed back into the clean air intake before the turbo.

sometimes that is the case, othertimes the turbo will leak excessive oil into the intercooler

if you're noticing oil in the exhaust I would pull the downpipe connection at the turbo and look for oil in there too. If so you'll need a turbo
