Default Turbo leaking out of compression side.

Hey guys. I've been reading around for awhile for answers to my question.
I couldn't find anything so I decided to become a member and ask away

Alright here goes

My turbo has been leaking oil out the compression side since I bought it.

I'm not sure what's wrong; if it's the oil feed being too high pressured, the return not doing a good enough job, or a defective turbo.
It's a t3t4 t03e
I've rebuilt it twice already. Upgraded to a 360 thrust washer.

Here's a link of my original discussion with another site. :: View topic - Turbo compression side spitting oil.

Any advise would be appreciated! Thanks guys

Could be any of the 3 reasons you have allready mentioned. When it was rebuilt did you have it balanced at all? C Could your turbo be out of balance and causing oil to get past the seals? Or have you checked where and what amout of oil pressure to correctly run for your car and your specific turbo?
