Question *Pls look at this pic* smoking from turbo

It's an 05 WRX and it started smoking after getting up to temp. I see oil on the hotside area. Does anybody know what could the cause be?

That is right where the oil feed line is. The gaskets for that banjo bolt must failed. Replace them and torque them to spec. That is where I would start.

if the banjo bolt is the one right on top with the little pipe running out of it, then that may be it. I just turned it on and saw oil dripping out of that bolt.

EDIT: i found a pic, oil it coming out from right under the bolt circled on the left.



Do i just get the OEM bolt and then remove and install and torque? What spec is it supposed to be? I have a vf39 if that makes a difference.
