    Unhappy is my turbo blown?

    went to change my oil the other day and i was just doing a general checkup and i noticed oil dripping from the pressure tube for the boost hose off the side of the turbo...the hose with the restricter. Just a small drip..then later the bov started to sound fluttery and wierd. -it was blowing oil out. so IS THIS the TURBO? like the bearings or seals or is this a ring letting go in the motor? i kno i could take it to a shop to run a compression check but i wanted to find out first if there is a definite way to tell if it is the turbo itself? i never turned up the boost and the car only has a uppipe and dp and spt intake. so my first thought is turbo. any suggestions are welcome!!!!

    Just remember, capitalization and punctuation marks the difference between, "I just helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse." and, "i just helped my uncle jack off a horse"
