I have tried to come with parts to plumb out the IC (and turbo) just to work on the car and have it run.

you can run it without the muffler or anything attached to the hot side of the turbo to check for oil leaks. you can even drive it that way.

I have the same turbo.
at the oil supply side to the turbo I have an adapter at the rear of the engine with a check ball in there. on the bottom side of the turbo I have a catch can about the size of a soda can.
I did the pump test a long time ago. I don't remember a lot of oil coming out of the turbo but my scavenge pump kept up.

what is going on exactly
where are you seeing oil?
check the return line for blockage
rebuild the scavenge pump.
sorry, I don't remember everything you have done.

when I filled my muffler with oil it took a long time to burn it off. man I left a smoke screen like you would not believe for a good 30 minutes. I even tried to wash it out first
