IS the turbo working ok?
What info alerted you to the fact it is "passing oil", I take that to mean lube oil is coming out of the turbo seals and into either the exhaust or intake streams.

If it is just the presence of oil in the intake after the PCV entry point and the intake tract has oil in it that is normal and can be largely eliminated with a decent catch can.

What mydmax says is good advice. Replacing the turbo is damn expensive. Have all the little, cheaper things been ruled out first, and by who?

You didn't mention how many KM's your vehicle has done so far. That will determine the life of the turbo.
Many oil issues with engines are directly attributable to the poor quality of the oil used in the engine. Many oils thin out more than they should, ie, become more watery when hot, and that will affect oil useage rates enormously.
If the oil is a high quality oil and blowby isn't excessive then it could be the turbo seals.

As Aussie said above, consider all the basic requirement first.
Like going to the doctor too, make sure you get a second opinion regarding replacing the turbo. What is the industry standing/competence of the person who is saying the turbo is at fault? Perhaps they are correct but if requiring brain surgery I would like to hear it from a competent neuro sirjohn, not Bob the mechanic around the corner.
