my PD has been consuming more and more oil lately , about 1 qt every 1000 miles
the compression has checked out OK, 425-435 across all cylinders
turbo hoses have no oil
no blue smoke under acceleration
some blue smoke during cold starts
no oil in the tailpipe
rear of the engine block is wet with oil but it does not match the consumption

car has a Garrett VNt17 since 220K and it is at 363K now. it started using more oil than normal since the turbo was installed . Consumption slows down if driven slower

I am suspecting the oil gets in the cylinders via the turbo in small quantities

Money is on the stem seals. Increased boost seems to upset seals that are getting on

You may be right

I will check the turbo compressor wheel for play and the oil fitting
