could be a turbo seal, could be a head gasket or a broken ring. Did you do a compression test?

Did you check your coolant. No oil in it and did you check your oil to see if there is any coolant in it. If your PCV system is not blocked then check the oil lines to the turbo. Sounds like a head gasket.
