I can probably see the answer before I get any replies but here goes
I went to jap fest santa pod at the weekend and on the way back home driving gently I noticed the tone of my exhaust go very deep and not being able to pick up speed well in any gear , plus when I pulled over I had this to look at
Vehicle Car Motor vehicle Hood Automotive design
not bad hay
I managed to get home with a few stops to cool down
The noise from the exhaust nearly turned my brain to mush

I reckon less than 5 miles left on that!!!

turbo shouldn’t touch the housings at all. They will still run but those bearings are shot. Likely a bunch of burnt up oil carbonized on the seal rings too.
