pressure testing the system is a great thing, especially when you think your burning oil as it may be getting induced with blow by instead of through the turbo and a broken inlet is huge in that aspect...especially when boost is involved.

You need to press against the compressor wheel of the turbo to see if there is resistance against the cartridge, that is where you'd determine if the turbo is faulty.

The leakdown test as stated above will help determine if you have a faulty piston, head or whatever, another great example of determining engine failures.
