Two things.
One you could be getting alot of oil from your crankcase breather if it is vented to your compressor inlet piping like it should be. You can use a catchcan to catch that oil vapor. Otherwise your turbo seals are shot and you're looking at a turbo rebuild which you could do yourself with the FAQ DIY writeups on here and a kit from Gpopshop.com. Try to clean all the oil out, then either VTA the crankcase or run a catch can to see if that is your problem, if that's not the problem then you know it's your turbo seals.

Yep, unless I was misinformed I got mine at Autozone, it looks just like the one I had on my miata, supposedly stronger though.

my oil drain line was not sloping properly once and it made oil leak past the turbo seals. Check that too

if everything is working right a crankcase breather filter is not needed.

If pcv and vent system are "proper", then something else is pressurizing the crankcase. Among the possibilities is a blown head gasket. Check your coolant and oil for contaminaton, then maybe a compression test. How's the performance? any different?

vacuum into the crankcase helps the rings seal better and helps the oil drain out of the turbo.

your turbo seals are gone. Its easy to rebuild just look at it well as you take it apart.
