Turbo smoke...

So ive got oil in my intercooler and a little bit of smoke at start up. Im confident its because of the oil seal in the turbo. I pulled the inter cooler and there is a fair amount of oil in there. So i have sent out a bunch of email and made a few phone calls to some tubro building places i found online and i havent heard back. Im not looking for power i just want my stock turbo rebuilt with stronger internals and seals. and probably ported and polished to make it a little more efficient, maybe ceramic coating as well. I have a 2013 wrx. 3in perrin catted DP and perrin cat back exhaust. Cobb SF intake and perrin oversized turbo inlet tube. i have the torqued performance stage 2 generic map they have out, but i plan on getting a real tune after the turbo is fixed. i dont want to do a whole lot more than where im at. im running low 13's as is and im happy with that for now. So my question is does anyone know a good rebuild company? i have the option of a warranty replacement of the turbo but i broke it once ill probably brake it again.

I have tried calling both places and left messages, and gotten no response. I email blouch this morning but as its sunday they may not get to it till monday. 6star i called multiple times and the link on their web page to send them an email is either broken or turned off. i would have like to use either of those two places.
E: i tried calling them thrusday and friday leaving messages at both places on both days...

Turbo smoke...

Two reasons you blow a 2013 turbo. One....erics tunes at TP have fell off in the past few years
Two....driving the car like an idiot

I wasn't trying to insult you. Just stating the obvious.

You're going to get real far in here! You don't need to act like we are attacking you.

They were trying to make heads or tails is all. Warranty going to assist with anything?

Lol. That's exactly what you did, though. Cut the dude some slack. Humbled himself enough to seek help on a turbo. -not a driving critique there, coach. But in all fairness, it's the internet and one should not obtain butthurt status over being called names on a public forum. Such is the life! One love, you filthy animals.

All that was said were facts of the possibilities of how a turbo could be blown on such a new car. Not directing it to anyone person. It was a general statement. We're all here to learn and help. I don't know why things need to be taken so personally. You also admitted to running low 13s aka racing so that doesn't help your argument.

Thought: If you took your car to the dealer to have it warrantied and they told you that it could have only happened because you abused the car would you go nuts on them? No one is saying that you did abuse your car, they are saying that is what it would take to do that sort of damage, possibly

I'm suing you for libel!!! Lol. I was just trying to lighten the mood, man. Abused and being told youre driving your car like an idiot are two very diff things. A dealer telling me such things wouldn't be a dealer for long and would have a size 12 to dislodge from his pretentious butthole. It's just a very abrasive way to talk to someone. But hey, it IS right, haha.

-Devil's advocate
