Oil cooled only. I have 01 v70 t5 with 149000 I getting blow by oil like you say I am going through half gaurt of oil every 1000 miles, I been checking IAT & MAP Sensors in the intake tube to make sure they are not full of oil so far so good I'm not blowing any smoke even on kickdown WOT on freeway, your going to have some blow by with higher mileage. If your not hurting sensors or blowing smoke let it go, unless everything has to be perfect like me, rebiuld or replace the turbo, I will be soon.
