Is this too much oil?

I just resealled my engine and now have it back in the car. I started it up and ran it for 15 minutes (no driving, just a short initial break in session). While checking a few things last night, I looked into the blow off assembly and saw more oil than I care to see. I don't imagine it's normal..
Every single piece of the engine was cleaned including the blow off assembly. The only place I would think that oil is coming from is the Turbo.

Thoughts (sorry about the blurry picture)? look at the bottom of where the throttle plate is.. should there be that much after 15 mins of running the engine (2200RPM)?
For this first one, I hadn't removed the assembly yet, so that is oil at the bottom there and not the o-Ring you are looking at.

I partially removed the assembly for this picutre and the oil dripped off the bottom onto the throttle body.
