Default The oil return line?

Where is your oil return line going to? If the line is below the oil level in the pan, has to go up or is kinked, the oil backs up and the oil becomes pressurized causing it go past the seal into your exhaust housing on the turbo thus smoking. I have seen many oil pan returns cause this problem. You may try looking at this before sending your turbo in for the rebuild.
