it is very comon for a bush type turbo to not spin when iding. check the clearance between the fins and housing but id say that it will be fine.

If it spun too much or made boost at idle it would be too small...
If there's NO end play etc she's fine....
I guess its quite a big turbo ?? Big exhaust housing ??? If its always had oil its fine....

in sayin dis i aint an expert,but, if the bearings have play they are prob gone or are going, and if itsnt boosting properly it culd also be a waste gate,id take it off and check things out
