I have to say, this is an odd discussion. John, you are worried about crap in the oil system that could make its way to the turbo, and destroy the seals. What about the same crap getting into the main and rod bearings? The cam journals or cam itself? Wouldn't you be more concerned about damaging the entire engine?

Now we are talking about crap in the exhaust circuit going through the turbo. For your info, I've had a piston melt and go through the turbo - no damage, only specks of aluminum but that was removed with Easy Off oven cleaner. This isn't to say FOD can't damage the turbo, so I would make sure the circuit is clean when you put it together.
