Default oil through inlet into turbo?

I was pulling my motor and when i was taking everything off there was a lot of oil throughout the intake path from a cracked ring land I had.

Well my question is oil came into the turbo inlet and was being sucked through the turbo and was curious if this does any damage to it or not?

The cracked rind land is the reason that there is oil on the compressor side of your turbo. You were experiencing blow-by in the cylinder which was pressurizing your crankcase and then pressurizing the center housing of your turbo via the oil drain tube. The oil that escaped and traveled across the compressor wheel will not destroy your turbo. I wouldn't worry about it, just get your motor fixed and you should be alright.
