    no expert on the vxr but had an impreza turbo before, as far as i know with turbos there should be minimal and i mean absolute minimal play in the shafts. Too much play can cause the blades to move whilst spooling thus causing damage, id take it back from whhere u got it to be safe.

    As per Clarkyboy's comments....There should be minimal play. If in doubt rule it out and send it back.
