Describing a turbo as gone bad doesn't adequately describe what happened to it and why. A turbo is a very strong and reliable bit of equipment that will give long service as long as it isn't abused. Assuming you didn't abuse it there will be a reason why it failed and it is important to discover the reason and if possible rectify the fault before or during the turbo replacement.
When replacing a turbo it is best practice to change the engine oil and filter and verify there is a good supply to the turbo and the drain back into the oil pan is clear. The intake must be checked and thoroughly cleaned of any and all foreign objects along with all the high and low pressure trunking and the intercooler. If the old turbo broke up it is important all the bits are found - because if part of the compressor is missing it could have been ingested by the engine or is perhaps lodged in the manifold or a port waiting to cause further expensive damage and inconvenience...
If the turbo went bad because of bearing and seal failure there could be quite a lot of oil in the exhaust system. If there is, it can take quite a long time for it to disappear. If you analysed the reason for the turbo failure correctly and fitted the replacement using best practice and the engine is running ok, you can be confident the smoke and oil drops will eventually clear. You should of course confine your driving to quiet country roads until it does.
Turbo manifold, blow off valve, waste gate, intercooler, turbo timer, piggyback or standalone ECU, most likely an all new exhaust system, new intake, filter. An oil cooler may be needed, as those turbo chargers are most likely cooled and lubricated by the oil in the engine, needing to be piped through the turbo itself.
1. First you need to find a matched turbo exhasut manifold.
2. Then you can find the position for the turbo once you have fitted the exhaust manifold.
3. You will heed to remove the radiator for now as the mounting position for this may need modifying also.
4. You will then need to get a oil supply line made up and fit this once turbo is fitted.
5. Run all your intercooler and inlet tract piping and your in business.
6. remount your radiator.
That should give you a very quick idea of what needs to be done, of course the job is going to take you longer.
the information is from the air sencoir onthe cat see exhaust. if you have a turbo .check hose from turbo to intercooler and clean check hose from intercooler to inlet manafold and clean if oil water mix found clean and check intercooler you may find oil and water mix
it sounds like your turbo has packed in firstly the oil seal in your turbo has failed thats why ur seeing oil from exhaust & the whistling from turbo is the vanes in turbo breaking up so i would advise not to use car until new turbo is fitted & inter cooler pipes and inter cooler itself are checked & cleaned for swarf from turbo you can check turbo by disconnecting turbo pipe &inspecting turbo vanes (fins) to see if broken up or any damage to chamber.
from what you describe re turbo and blue smoke then you say impellor is loose?? this soundslike the tubo has failed because the oil seals have gone allowing oil loss to bearings due to entering the induction/manifold you will req a recon or new turbo and if yours is intercooled then the intercooler will req cleaning as will ind hoses when work is completed the smoke will be evident for a while due to exhaust system contamination especially catalytic ? i'm afraid these components are expensive and not really diy
