There really shouldn't be enough oil in the filter to hurt a turbo. The filter should be virtually dry to the touch. The problem I heard is that it's filtering efficiency not good enough for a turbo charged engine. It lets too many particles through when you start sucking on it hard. That=bad for the turbo.
I could be wrong, but I don't think the oil is a problem. You are already sucking oil out onto the turbo from the crankcase vent (unless you re-routed it), and that doesn't hurt anything.
