I would have it checked out by a shop because if its not a good thing then it can become a really bad problem quickly with the methods your trying.

It wont take very long to quickly look over things....

check in the downpipe to turbo area for oil/coolant residue
Check in the IC pipes for oil
Check in the IC for oil
compression check
leakdown test
then do the road/dyno test

The worst things that could happen if you check these things first and you do find something wrong the engine is rebuildable, but lets say the piston ring land cracked and when your pushing the motor hard and it finally says bye bye you could end up with a hole in the block and a head thats trashed costing you more money. So if you cannot perform those above checks I would goto someone who can in your area.

im going to say its prolly normal white oil/fuel smoke. but who am i to say?
i mean when your boosting the car, there is alot of vacuum on the crankcase system...so its gonna suck up a little oil...catchcan FTW!!!
but thats just my $.02...get it checked out

No not catless...and the engine level is good...i know its leaking oil from the right front axle seal but that wouldnt have anything to do with it blowing blue smoke out the exhaust unless it some how leaks from the axle seal and seeps into the exhaust pipe...dont know?????
