Advice/suggestions are appreciated.
Car has 50k on it and is stg 2...

That is a lot of oil burn. Thats what I was getting. The dealer told me bad supply to the turbo from none OEM oil lines but that was BS. The builder pulled the turbo apart and told me that the the bearings went and there was shaft play and a lose bolt and the blades all mixed into the destructive failure of my motor. I had minimal sparklies but once it happens you might as well do a build.

I am fairly new to turbo'd cars but everything I've seen says that burning that much oil means that the turbo is the culprit.
Oil in the I/C, check the lines and the banjo filters, I was also told that my Intake manifold was sparkled...maybe check that too?
