    Oil will leach through your front right breather pipe if that's the one you mean?

      I think he's talking about the turbo oil return pipe just behind the heatshield (back of turbo).

      I think these often leak, check the bolt holding the pipe in place.

      If your getting the turkey noise its a loose boost pipe near the rear of the engine iirc. Search for threads on here which will help to diagnose.
