    Arrow Turbo Oil Seals Blown!?

    I've got a 2005 WRX. A couple days after I put in my new inlet pipe, I noticed my car smoking out of the tailpipe a bit. I thought nothing of it. Probably just steam/water. Well, today I notice quite a bit more smoke lingering around my car, idling. When I drove off there was quite the cloud following me. I got home and went to the tailpipe. As I expected, it smelled heavily of oil. Popped my hood, and noticed the bearing housing on my turbo seemed to be leaking oil; as there was oil on the housing itself. Is it common for the seals to blow out at 60k? I'm thinking turbo seals. Any one have any ides?
