Ok so, after saying how perfect my car was after 6 mths, sods law popped up and booted me in the...well you know where, wet this morning , been on a 19 mile , round trip, noticed the car seemed to hold back, stutter then , i was able to accelerate although could tell something wasn't right , no warning lights on dash while driving or stationary, no plumes of Turbo or head gasket smoke coming from the rear, , water good in radiator bottle, so removed the engine cover and forgive my photography took these, one thing I will say is when switching the car off, you can hear a noticable, almost metallic hum , only for 3 seconds or so

I was/am initially thinking its a split in this pipe, which i presume is the turbo pipe? if so , is it usually full of oil ?

I believe oil can build up but will be worse if turbo knackered etc. First thing I would do is replace the pipe, clean out what you can (remove check / clean intercooler? Make sure not loads of oil in it). Replace pipe and see how it runs.
