Hey all,

decided to boroscope my turbos today.
Found what seemed like a light “film” around everything and a couple oil spots.
What do you guys think? I should note that I’m always a worst-outcome thinker so if there’s nothing wrong, just tell me lol. Otherwise, all input is greatly appreciated :)

I don't know why oil would be in there, but that doesn't mean you should worry. Are you using K&N oiled air filters?

Are you pushing more than OEM boost?

If the left side compressor outlet is dry, but the right side compressor outlet is not, the right side does have a breather tube that dumps into that area in the intake horn, so you will see a little oil mist.

My passenger side (notice some oil vapor on the "rim" of the compressor outlet):
