Looking under the car, I have noticed that the bottom of the cradle is oily. Not dripping, just oily. I also found some Olu on the passenger break line. And then on the bottom of the sandwich plate hose connection. Is it possible that I am spaying oil while under load (cause it ain't happening at idle) that is just blowing in to the road. But when I stop and park, the oil recedes from the sandwich plate and doesn't drop anywhere? I do believe I am burning oil but maybe that is not how I am losing most of it. I think I need a small camera to mount under the hood. This would explain why the major consumption started with the turbo.

Possible, but your still pressurising the bottom end. That's not good.
