Op, does the inlet side of the turbo have oil in it? Same goes for the actual turbo inlet. Any oil in there?

If there is, you might want to start checking or replacing the PCV and some of the other related hoses.

Do you have an AOS on this car?
Sorry to not have included my modifications, but yes! I do have an AOS. I am now in the process of getting a new PCV and will clean out all the oil in the hoses thoroughly. And yes, I noticed some oil in the samco inlet tube. All this seem to have gone wrong coincidentally from an oil change???
