Oil in turbo?

Doing my glow plugs today and taking off the cold air pipes noticed there
was a little oil in both pipes,well I have noticed it using some oil.
Is this normal or is my turbo going out?What we talking to replace it?

a little oil is normal, what happens is oil is sucked up from you crankcase breather into the turbo inlet..this can be caused by a dirty air filter causing more suction on the crankcase breather tube. but a little oil is nothing to worry about. if you're concerned about your turbo remove the inlet and move the shaft/inspect the vanes. vanes should not have any damage, shaft will move very slightly, just enough so the vanes don't hit the housing.
