    No. More than likely it's because your turbo seals are blown.

    It's usually easy to see. Pull off your intercooler, and check inside to see if there is oil, and look in the turbo's compressor outlet and see if there is oil. If there is... then you have a blown turbo.

    It's not going to cost much. Used STi turbos have pretty much flooded the market.

    It'll cost 3-400 dollars for a replacement turbo.

    That's for just a used turbo. It's recommended to change both gaskets (just a few bucks) and then you'll probably have to add a little oil, and possibly coolant. Then labor is usually $75 per hour - ish. Do it yourself.

    Moving to Troubleshooting

    It is normal to have some oil in the intercooler, just not a lot.

    WRX motors do sometimes eat more oil than you would expect. Mine has been pretty good but there have been plenty of others reported.
