Default 05 sti gt30r rotated turbo, fluid on lines after driving

So I pulled into my garage after driving home from the gym, popped the hood just to take a look around and found the turbo was smoking (faintly) and there was what appears to be oil on some lines and the side of the turbo. If someone could tell me what might be going on that would be much appreciated. I will attach some pics.

Unfortunately I think it's too late, I believe the turbo is shot -__-

That will work with the rotated setup I have on their currently?

I've seen the numbers. I deff like what I see. Should I go with a built bottom end to support all that power? Stock block is good for what? 400whp and then the pistons stsrt to go?

Do you know which rotated setup you're using, Perrin, ETS, AMS, etc? The good thing with Garrett most of the 30r and 35r units can be ordered with vband or 4 bolt in which most cases will work.

As far as the bottom end, if still strong, all supporting mods and a good tune you are good for a little with lower 400whp. But if you are interested in building a block look to have a built and blueprinted blocks by IAG, ASF, out front, etc...
