Default need help, leaky oil in engine bay PICS!!!

Well yesterday there was leaky oil and blue smoke coming out of the back of the car when i got on it, checked the oil level today and it has 3 quarters, it was full yesterday... I know that i may have a blown piston ring because of the exhaust coming into the block, and through the pcv valve lines, but what could cause these pools of oil??? they are all by the intake shroud, and the left side of the car, but it is not on the motor, just on the sidewall, was not there yesterday. Im guessing it may be the oil inlet line to the turbo??? any comments are appreciated

whatever it is it looks to be spraying from somewhere, you may have had a boost leak and the oil from the blown ring is getting pushed out. good also be a turbo oil seal.

run a compression if that number is ok then start troubleshooting turbo. (variance less than 10 psi between banks
