I just put in a new engine and started it up. Oil came from the turbo going out the intake and through the down pipe and fmic. I figured the turbo was bad because i bought it used. I threw on a stock k03 and the same thing is happening! Its so bad that it gets all the way to the spark plugs and gets them covered in oil. Could it just be bad luck and i have 2 turbos with bad seals? Any help would be great!

Sounds like bad piston rings/head gasket but that's just a guess

I did a compression test and all 4 were around 170. So does that rule out those possibilities?

i think you need to do a leak down test to know for sure?

i was gonna go with the head gasket but i think you just made it void.
