it is caused by exessive crank case pressure which is caused by blowback from the combustion chamber...e.g pistion rings.

the pressure isnt being released which can be caused by the breather being blocked from the cam cover to the throttle body

the turbo is about6weeks oldandthe head gasket was done about 6 month stops ago and i used a steel gasket and head studs youcan actually see where oil is running into the turbo from the breather! ill check to see if theres any blockages if not looking at doing the bloody piston rings!
