So atleast once a day i would get white/blue smoke out of the exhaust after idleing for 5-10 min, or coming to a stop at a light, so i yanked the DP and looked into the turbo and saw wetness just past the turbine wheel i also have some shaft play! So its back to stock and at the dealer...

Anybody else STG2 notice this?

You may be experiencing exactly why there was a recall on the oil feed line. They should honor the warranty and get a new turbo for you if all works well.

Good luck

Were/Are you able to reach the "wetness" to determine what exactly the liquid is? That is, have you verified it is in fact oil?

I personally wouldn't wait as you said earlier, you have bearing play already. @stage 2, you may have been boosting past the turbos limitations, busted or damaged the seal and bearing.
