Default Is it oil pressure? or Is it my seals?

My oil is spraying from both sides intake and outlet. I read a post similar that said he needed a check valve or something like that to keep the oil pressure from spewing past the turbo seals?

Anyone know? or know what are the signs of each?

there is only one way to check man. throw a small needle valve from home depot on there and turn the pressure down.

if it doesnt leak after that then your set, if it does its your seals being whooped.

actually its not that bad. I'm getting a little oil out my BOV. I check my return on my pan and its a good size a little bit smaller than the one comming off actual turbo.
The only things I can think of is its the

1. The elbow
2. To much pressure
3. seals

So I'm trying to figure what are the signs of each so I can try and fix it.
