Default Is this turbo garbage?

I bought this GT2860RS .86 turbo from Rharris19 which he said only had 100 miles on it. When i got it it had both axial and radial shaft play although not enough to contact the blades. Anyway i took off my intake 10 minuets ago and discovered a bit of oil on the inlet. I thought it may be residue so i wiped it off and then took a video...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WJIYwUpreTY I must be retarded cause i clicked on the youtube embed button and it didnt work when i previewed my post.

I used a 0.060 restrictor initially and I got leaks. I now use a 0.035 and have no problems yet.

EDIT: All those posts beat me to it ^

I ran the .0625" restricter and it was too big and I had to "drain the intercooler" lol. I have a .035 now and very little oil weeps past. I can run one session and feel no oil on the blow off valve, I can run 2-hours and get a very thin "haze" on the blow off valve to the point that its negligible.

If you have the BEGi lines you'll need to get the restricter from BEGi. If not you can get them on the cheap from just about anywhere...maybe ARTech has them.
