If it hasn't been pointed out already, it is pretty easy to remove the intercooler and look down into the turbo to see if you have oil pooling in the compressor housing. You might need to shine a flash light down into it. Additionally, you should see quite a bit of oil in your intercooler if the turbo seals have gone bad. A thin oily film is normal, but when you tilt the I/C to one side and oil pours out of it...well, that ain't good. Also, are you still running the original factory 3LDZ turbo? What's the mileage?
