I read somewhere that a small amount of oil getting thrown at the turbo with the intake air will help lubricate it. On the other hand, every turbodiesel I've seen has the whole intake track "sweating" oil, so I doubt that this amount is small, or that it doesn't effect emissions.

What matters is where you're going, not how fast.
