When you reply please feel free to add as much detailed information as possible pertaining to your concern.
Is this a large leak or a small leak. How much oil is coming through the starter area?
Is this a constant drip? If so, How many seconds or minutes between each drip that comes off the starter bolt??
When replacing the turbo, did you replace the gaskets on the turbo mounting bracket?? This leak may be coming from there..
There is a weep hole at the back of the engine that usually is the place where any oil leakage in the valley ends up leaking out through. This weep hole trails to the starter mounting area... At this time, I recommend to double check the turbocharger installation to see if possibly the gasket slid out during installation...
Keep me posted...
Here is a pic of the engine showing the inside of the bell housing area. The weep hole at the top leads to an area next to the turbocharger mounting bracket. IF the gaskets are leaking, any oil would be coming through this weep hole and end up coming out the starter mounting area.

No, Only coolant runs through the intake manifold. IF the fresh oil is extremely black, maybe it's coming out of the swirl valve pivots..
