I was planning on keeping it stock till after winter my last one has a big fp16g and it was too much for winter so I want to keep it cheap and relaible for now
 
well i want this to be my driver though winter then summer i plan on modding it and i have no shaft play i guess seals r bad or what ever else would go wrong
 
So many possible issues if there's no play. If you're feeding from the filter housing, there's a good chance you're over-oiling it by sending double the amount of oil pressure the MHI turbos like to see. You can try adding a restrictor to the feed line, but normally once it's been smoking a while the damage is done and the turbo will need serviced to replace the leaking seals.

Also, verify that the oil drain is not pinched or kinked in any way if it's not an OEM metal drain.
 
Have you thought about stepping down to a 14b? They can be had for little to nothing and like all mhi turbos very durable.
