1 was rebuilt somewhat locally here in Canada. I don't want to mention any names, but I do think the exhaust side is not right... how can it blow oil even on the outside. Unless my sump isn't working, but it is for sure. I just tested it.

I had the car running with a shallow pan under the turbo to catch the oil and the sump line in the pan as well to capture the oil. There was obviously no oil restriction int he turbo and it still smoked tons.

i posted two vids on youtube:

YouTube - 930 turbo issue (vid 2)

YouTube - 930 turbo issue (vid 1)

Sorry, I reversed the videos. the one with less smoke is the second one.
