Hi there,
You need to inspect the the turbo outlet duct, if there is an appreciable amount of oil in the duct or intercooler, the turbo is the culprit, could also be too much oil supply to the turbo, needs a restrictor in the supply line.
If the oil is minimal or none, then the engine has an issue.
Custom turbo installs are known for this problem, especially if the engine wasn't originally turbocharged.
Hope this helps.
