Gotcha. I remember when I experienced turbo failure, there was a small pool inside the turbo when you looked down. Im sure there are levels of failure or degradation, pooled oil being pretty bad, hah. Am i reading that right? .020"? Seems like a little bit too much. Im no turbo expert though.

I dont see how the oil can come from anywhere else other than the breather if you have it plumbed to the intake. Obviously you know the effects of overfilling.

As for the oil drips around the seam of the compressor housing, a temp 3LDZ I was using did the same thing. I disassembled it after it was removed, and IIRC there was a small amount of sealant type stuff around the circumference. Looks like an easy fix (if removed), but not sure about access with the turbo still installed.
