I took the compressor side housing off to inspect the internals for any contact and to get a good measurment of the shaft side play. I used my dial indicator and setup to measure.

Side play was .015" of an inch
End play was .004" of an inch

The inside of the compressor has no signs of contact and the compressor wheel looks good. It obviously needs a good cleaning though. The shaft spins free but does not free wheel so the seals appear to be ok. Hard to tell without putting oil pressure to it though. This turbo was changed after finding some oil residue in my intake plenum. I never had the issues of blue smoke after lifting off the gas though. Is there anything else I should check?
