It was spraying oil and was smoking it did it for a while before i figured out that is was actually that o ring on the bottom of turbo return pipe where it goes into the block. Finally, no more smoke or big puddles of oil everywhere

Went on deployment 3 months left my car at a buddy house . Came back there was no oil in the car. Upon further investigation I saw that the oil was leaking between the turbo return line and and the turbo .
