How's it compare to oil residue Before & After the turbo? That is, if there's Lots before maybe just CCV, if After could be the Turbo itself.

Don't panic if there's a bit of UP & DN play in the turbo shaft, it's supposed to be there but, any evidence of the compressor contacting the housing?

How many miles?
