Arrow leaking oil!! HELP

Heres the deal, the line going from the turbo to the wastegate blew off from the turbo and still was connnected to the wastegate. I don't know if it was hooked up right to begain with b/c I get compressure surge when I blow off and when I tried to turned my wastegate a while back to up the psi to 7 or 8 pounds, it stayed at 5. So I turned the wastegate back to where it was and left it that b/c I didn't need problems. So at 5 pounds tonight the line blows off at some point on the way home and I don't realize it until i pop the hood when i get home. I go to check the exhaust and notice there is a trail of oil leading into my driveway and right under the motor after letting it idle for about 2 minutes and there is about a 1/4 of a quart of oil on the ground I checked my exhaust to see if oil was coming out of it but it was dry. The motor is a 1.8 that has about 135k on it I don't know if this could possibly be my piston rings or what, PLEASE HELP?

No oil in the exhaust is a good sign. Get a compression test to be sure. Wipe all the oil off of the underside and look for the fresh oil leak.
