951 oil leak....from the K&N?????

Anybody got any ideas why after a recent dyno session, with the car off, oil began flowing out of the K&N air filter? Car ran fine on the dyno, no smoke, etc, had about 285 at the wheels and everything looked good. Shut it down and began to pack up and noticed oil under the car, right under the K&N air filter. Oil in the turbo, in the intercooler, turbo inlet/outlet piping. Car starts fine. Could it be a bad turbo seal that leaks under heavy loads?

Likely the seal on the compressor side is leaking.
