Oil from exhaust

Just did injectors and a billet wheel and now there is oil coming from the exhaust, steady drip at idle. Haven't driven the truck yet, just want to see if it's normal or not. And if not is it turbo or injectors? Thanks.

That is the oil that got by the valves when you were cranking the motor over to evacuate the cylinders.
Go for a good drive to burn it all out. There is probably half a quart in your muffler that needs to burn off.

I will say that when it happened to me it freaked the CRAP out of me

Just drove it, feels and sounds like it's getting boost, but my boost guage isn't moving. No obvious gaps anywhere to give me no boost so I'm thinking I may have broke my plug on the turbo giving me a small boost leak and no reading. Just nervous never done anything this big to my truck before, especially not in one shot.
