I have a terrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrible oil leak since i went turbo, i check all oil lines and return but there is no oil around them, but oil all over the front of the engine... im thinking front seal, but have you guys ever tried that dye stuff with the black light?

i feel like it leaks worst in boost, blow by maybe, but my dipstick usually pops out of place before a seal rips through
