turbo blow out

I have a problem I installed a rebuilt high performance 3ldz that has had the internals enlarged with newer advanced wheels 61mm after install I had a leak in the center so I removed the turbo and installed a k-27 999 i fired up the car and after a few seconds white billowing smoke i removed the muffler and the center section had blew out lots of oil in the exhaust side and the compressor side. two turbos in a row so. the first turbo I used a custom bracket the second turbo I used the factory bracket I have a v band setup and the stock muffler band after the turbo the only thing I can figure is the clamping forces are flexing the turbo? Would a oil pressure malfunction Has anyone had this problem I have used the k-27 before with no problems. Any suggestions?
