    oil seals on a turbo

    Hi all,

    if my oil seals have gone on my turbo, would this make the boost feel less powerful??


    thanks

    yeah got smoke but only on high boost. oil is coming out of compressor side.

    its just really lagging at the moment, seems to struggle to over boost.
