Gq td42 Turbo, high mounted T04e

Been running a second hand set up on my patrol for a few weeks now,
Everything running good, then 2 day ago i noticed a lot of blue smoke out of my exhaust,
Checked engine bay, and pulled the plumbing off the turbo,
No oil in the front housing, pulled crossover off, and had oil all through piping into the intake, oil through my exhaust, can notice on the dump, flanges and tip,

Oil return line to the sump had a kink in it, not sure if competely blocked off though..

Where would the oil be coming from??
Coming back from the kinked return line?
Or an oil seal in the turbo let go?

Need ideas before i go spending money on a new turbo,

The kinked line certainly would have caused oil to leak past the rear seal.

Chances are it will be ok if you unkink the hose. It will probably take a few days to burn all the oil out of the exhaust though. Might even be worth pulling the muffler off and seeing if the fiberglass is completely soaked with it.
