After re-reading your initial post (for the umpteenth time), it appears no only that there is a good chance a chunk of crud flaked off and was ingested by the engine, but you may have experienced a blow-turbo as well.

Leaking oil out the exhaust while engine is idling.......

If the seal on the exhaust side of the Turbo is worn really bad as well as the shaft bushing (bearing), it will dump oil while idling ... Out on the road, such a leaky Turbo will not be quite as bad considering exhaust back-pressure is much higher which helps keep the oil leak in check.

Yep! There could be other issues as well.
'84 Vanagon '02 ALH TDI engine Malone Stage 1 tune. CAT, SS 2" exhaust, E-vac system, DMF with upgrade pilot shaft, 4.57 R&P, fan assisted IC. (32 to 35+ MPGs consistently)
