Ok, here's the latest test, which I think is pretty definitive. Car smokes after a few minutes of warmup, and badly on decel down to idle.

I hooked up the boost line to the blowgun of my air compressor, and sent 7 PSI to the wastegate. I had the car warmed up and smoking. The wastegate opened and no smoke came out. So, the guess is the internals of the engine are just fine, and the turbine seal went on vacation.

This is all quite educational, albeit a massive PITA.
