^^^ haha. I check it at least every 2 days. I burn about a quart every 150-200 miles. I need to start buying oil wholesale. lol
You can get a cheap turbo already assembled (maybe 150$?) or replace seals in yours and save some money. I don't think bad seals = bad turbo/shaft ( maybe sometimes). To replace seals iirc you just need simple hand tools( wrenches, ratchet/sockets, needle nose or snap ring pliers, screwdrivers, and a hammer/mallet) < double check that search youtube videos.
Wait for someone to confirm this ^^^^ but you should be able to replace your seals on your kitchen table (shaft seals)
check oil return line for any damage (hard to see)
check oil feed line ( easy to see)
If your not a good mechanic just get a new turbo. good luck
