Chipped Turbo fan blade

I had just put in a new (but used with under 100k miles) turbo in my 06’ 6.0. After test driving it for the first time, I pulled the intake off and noticed the fan blades on the turbo where chewed up like a chew toy after that one drive. Is it safe for me to drive the truck with chipped fan blades? I’m not noticing any driving differences except for slightly higher but not alarming egts. And I believe my mechanic hooked up the oil feed line incorrectly which starved the turbo of oil which caused this to happen yet caused an oil leak on right below the turbo and dripping down both sides of the transmission.

How does igniting glow plugs circulate oil?
"It's a little known fact that the glowplug is a predecessor to the modern-day low pressure oil pump. Early glowplugs were instrumental in moving oil in and through a particular area within the truck's dynamic parameters..."

I think a lot of people mean well and try to save some money. Let's face it, these parts aren't cheap. However, by trying to save some money and not doing any research on the subject at hand, they often times create their own issues and end up spending that money + more on down the line.
