Was the turbo completely removed and the oiling system terminated or rerouted back into the engine? Oil blowing out the exhaust is a bad sign and it can be piston rings, pistons, cracked block and even a busted cylinder head. Was it blowing white smoke before? With all that oil it should be running very poorly.
