checked the turbo today and saw a small spot of brown oil. i also moved the shaft and there was just a very small movement in the shaft. does that mean the bearing or seal failed?

Is there oil in your T/body? If not dont worry about it. If it is I have a very nice one in the PFS section.

Thank God there is no oil in the Throttle body. Well only oil from the denatured/marvel mystery oil that sprays in the plenum pipe to the throttle body.
