Turbo cooking oil

If I remove the oil feed tube and look in the turbo (on the truck), will I be able to see if I have cooked any oil?

Well for where I would be looking, is that the spot that it would cook?

I sure don't know the answer here, but am curious as to what has led you to look at this. Is there something that caught your attention?

just the thought. And the people who have used rev-x, some state that their trubo performs better from rev-x cleaning the oil system.

It will be interesting to see what Blackstone comes up with when they analyze the sample request on that other thread.

Thanks

Steve you are looking in the right spot but it is going to start coking around the bushings and may or may not extend into the drain orifice. That's why I said maybe. I do know that when I added 2 bottles of Rev-X to my oil I noticed that my turbo spooled quicker.
