you might also want to check the plastic(rubber?) intake piping right there on the turbo. mine has a crack in it and leaks oil from the whole blowby thing(I really need a catch can).

On a seperate note, how much oil should really be blowing through there? cuz it seems when I go on a long trip(like 400 miles) I need to put a whole quart of oil in. I dont have any oil leaks anywhere else.

whoa! 1qt in 400 miles?? i went from NJ to VA beach (mapquest-341miles) and i lost about 1/3 of oil. that was when my turbo oil seals were still good. now i would lose about 1/4 of oil if i drive hard for about an hour (30-50 miles)
