oils' from the ebpv rod assy, protruding from the pedestal. Remove the inlet to turbo, and try to move the wheel. Should not have any in/out, side/side play. Might be a good time to rebuild it all...

my 2 pennies, first, fix the leaks and running properly, then worry about more power.

Fix your problems and issues.
Then intake, exhaust, gauges, and no superchips but other tunes. TS at the minimum.

You need injectors. I had the same problem. Do you have a slight vibration at 1500-2000 rpm?
