1 thing to check is the size of the feed hole on the oil hose on the top of the turbo centre section

it should have a restrictor either in the line or on the entry to the turbo of 1.0mm diameter, if this restrictor is not present or if the turbo drain pipe is somehow blocked then the turbo bearigns will be flooded and leak past the seals into the intake
