any idea how long you ran that way? you could check the turbo blades for scarfing....wouldn't hurt to change the oil,but the oil filter is there to filter........but i'm curious.....have you been servicing your own air filter ?........did you change to K&N or some other brand.do you still have the O.E.M. CAI ?......what conclusions did you come to ?.....just a poor fit or poor installation?

I would run high quality synthetic oil not cheap crap.

And run a good CAI, not K&N, or stay stock.
