    ok guys so i broke down on my way from work last week i was driving home from work it was dark i lost boost and loss of power i saw smoke pouring out my exhaust i pulled over the idle is steady but rough you can tell there is a miss i shut it down and had it towed home lucky i did because there was no oil on the dip stick i assume it all went out the exhaust i started pulling the car apart and its def the turbo is shot the bearing and seals are gone i found oil coming out the turbo and found oil in my intake i pulled the plugs and see black carbon and smells like gas my question is if the turbo stops working would it cause i rough idle im worried about the engine it self there was no pinging or knocking noise when i pulled over i ripped everything apart and waiting for a new turbo to come in got me a 16g for now cause its my daily driver and ordering a new exhaust manifold the one i had a crack in it and some new oil linesi just prey there's no engine damage any input thanks

    If you ran it low on oil you likely wiped some bottom end and balance shaft bearings because of the metal in whatever oil you had left plus the general lack of oil pressure, on top of that if that turbo had the blades hit the housing your intake sucked in metal shards and they went right into the engine and could have tore some stuff up pretty bad, and like I said, your inter-cooler is probably a throw away if the turbo wheels are junked, the rest of the parts can probably be cleaned but you will never get metal shavings from an intercooler and all it takes is a piece the size of a single grain of salt to do engine damage. All you can do is keep looking closer at everything even though that's not what you want to hear.

    I would do both yes, and actually a leak down test would tell you more.
