Last Monday night, my oil pressure light started flashing, got the oil system cleaned and oil change done, but the turbo seemed to have seized. However at this point, i have been driving it carefully and the turbo can be heard now just like before, but i can't tell if there is a lack of power now or if there is a way to diagnose if the turbo could have gone bad now.

Are there things i should look for specifically? like have my brother driver the car by me and spool the turbo? i thought i read somewhere that there could be smoke out of the tailpipe when the turbo spools, things like that.

If anyone has any clue how to sort of pinpoint any symptoms i should be looking for it would be appreciated.

it did the first day after the oil pressure issue, but now it seems to be going fine.

i think im just overly pessimistic.

at this point it seems like the car is running like a champ which sounds uncanny.
