Hello you don't say what make and model this is but assuming its a petrol engine then1st thing to try is pull the spark plugs and check them for oil damagereplace any if they fail this checklist then while the plugs are out do a compression test across all cylinders as they should all be within 10-15 psi of each other if this is all OK then hopefully all you need is a new a turbo and to flush the intercooler out to remove the oil

OK if its a diesel then ignore the bit about spark plugs but the compression test is still a good idea and also clean out the intercooler , by removing it from the car and flushing it through with brake cleaner if you have good compression then hopefully all thats required is a new turbo
