I long time ago my turbo seal went out on me and oil+coolant went through my intake. Not much went through, but my main worry is if the IC would not function as well as before because of this. I haven't taken it off, but I have replace the DV and check other areas and there were traces of oil from the past in them. I only ask this because my boost is falling about 5-8 PSI short of where it should be and I cannot find a vacuum leak anywhere and I had my codes read at an Autozone here and they did not find anything...any suggestions or past experiences? Thanks.

You could take your IC out and run some gasoline through it, that's what I did when I was replacing my old turbo that wasn't working anymore.

I had a bunch of oil in the lower IC pipe and the solid crossmember, so I just flushed some gasoline through and let them dry before I put them back.

Well, gas, brake clean, anything that's a heavy duty solvent to destroy the oil and clear out the small passageways in the IC.
