HI GUYS, took my car to tunit in chorley to have tuning box and k&n put in yesterday, only on inspection the mechanic came in and said the turbo had oil in the air filter side, and there was a little play in the shaft. and that he wouldnt fit it until the turbo had been repaired / replaced i was gutted to say the least as the max doesent smoke and pulls well..... Anyone know who can recomend someone in the manchester area to recon it for me please thanx NUDGE

turbo uses the oil vapours from the engine as lubrication as far as i know from reading up on it, mine is the same (air filter has a bit of oil on it)

the only oil that should be in the inlet tract is what the crankcase ventilation has sucked back into the system which should not really get to the air filter
