My turbo has recently failed and was throwing out a fair bit of oil.
I have had the turbo, re-manufactured and is now excellent.
However will my cat be full of oil??
If so should i replace
Decat
or is there a way of cleaning it out??

Any help greatly appreciated as have just done timing belt, tensioners and water pump
turbo in and out, inlet manifold and egr cleaning, egr blanked.
And want to get it spot on before ruininig it further with some back pressure

Wash it out with a strong hose and what's left over will probably burn out. The whole exhaust is probably soaked with oil and the drivers behind you will hate you :)

Don't forget to thoroughly clean the intake and intercooler! If there's lots of oil in the intake it could cause a runaway or hydrolock.
