Hello good afternoon I was cleaning up my engine bay a bit when I started spinning my turbo I noticed it had bit to much play I have a s464 with .90 back housing I don’t hear anything weird when accelerating. is this something I should worry about the turbo is three months old and has less than 5k miles on it………… or is it because I’m pushing to hard ? Can’t post a video wish I could

Define "a bit too much play." You can post a video on YouTube and link to it.

Should be no in an out movement. Some side to side. Cant remember the actual tolerance but obviously you dont want the impeller touching the housing.

Ok so I took the cover off to clean it and tried it again I moved it side to side and it’s just a little bit I’m guessing for the oil to pass through as for it moving inwards and outwards I think I was just imagining stuff it didn’t do it again thanks for the help

The oil pressure will tighten up the little bit of side to side play. As long as you have no in and out play, sounds like you should be good.
