sounds kind of shady. if the turbo put bits of metal into the motor the shortblock could be on borrowed time, hard to say really especially if he's not being forthright with you. A compression test likely won't tell you much as far as that goes, changing the oil is a better bet I think. Although both are a good idea before buying a used turbo subaru.
