Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

I assume the oil you're seeing is in the exhaust. If you're seeing oil in the exhaust after the turbo then it's either pushing out of the turbo or it's being burned in the engine.

When the turbo was removed did you check for oil in the exhaust manifold?

Was this the issue the turbo was replaced for?

Was anything else cleaned, checked or replaced when the turbo was done other than the crankcase filter?
