There is a post some place on hear about injector O-rings and/or bad injectors cosing oil disappearing without a sign, it's a good read for you. But Mavrick's post asks about high RPM. It's possible that the crank case vent can allow oil in the intake at the turbo inlet over the left valve cover and burn it as fuel without smoke as well. It's worth checking it out for sure. Pull the inlet off the turbo and look at the crankcase vent, some oil is normal but not much. If your air filter is clogged the motor can pull a good vacuum in the inlet and then if your crankcase vent allows excessive flow past it you could get quite a lot of oil at high RPM.
I will look for that post in the AM and link it hear.
