I have read that the first step to diagnose a leaking turbo oil seal is to pull the downpipe and look for oil. If no oil in the downpipe, your smoke is coming from another source.
If you keep searching the forums, you will find a fellow who successfully rebuilt his own turbo (not the cleaning procedure, a true rebuild). He had to get parts directly from Garrett as FoMoCo does not sell them.
