    I was told by someone that they burn about half a quart for every thousand miles...isn't that why everyone always says to check your engine oil everytime you fill up the gas tank...just to keep an eye on it?

    Search NASIOC, IWSTI, WRXTuners, ClubWRX, and all the local forums you can find!

    For the gaskets, just contact one of the forum vendors and they'll get them for you, or you can go to a local dealership. They're pretty cheap either way.

    Welcome to the club!
    turbo cars burn more oil than naturally aspirated. Our cars burn close to 1 qt. of oil every 3,000 miles or so.

    I've never burned any. I'm always still at full when I hit my 5k mile interval for oil changes.

    That's a completely false statement to generalize about turbo vs NA cars burning oil. The M5's NA V10 burns a quart to a quart and a half of oil between every oil change.

    The higher performance an engine, the more likely it is to burn oil. That's a better generalization.

    your answering your own questions, once again. You stated that a "v10" burns about 1qt. between oil changes...whereas our cars will burn this same amount with a 4 cyl due to turbo.

    I believe a turbocharger falls in the catagory "High Performance" when being compared to your everyday car.

    k so im guessing that i have the problem of blown oil seals in my turbo. I have oil coating the entire inner of my turbo and into my intercooler and even into my throttle body. So what does it take to replace the seals or should i just get a used turbo. Also if i replace the turbo will i have to drain oil and coolant?

    Wouldn't hurt to change everything out since you will be replacing a vital piece.
