It could be a turbo oil seal leaking. a oil ring on a piston or just oil being drawn thru the intake side of the turbo from a saturated ccv filter, or even a injector over fueling a little.

I think of short of pulling them and having em bench tested, the only other way is a cyclinder balance test which takes plugging into capable equipment. Even wth that, i think it would be tough to say wether its an injector, or rings etc.

Has your engine ever been apart? For head gaskets or somethin? I think a bent push rod could be one possible cause of your blue smoke/unburned diesel smell
