i notice a oil smell after i get done "boosting" lol... then i notice my car smokes a little... could this be a blown turbo? it runs fine and boost fine...i also noticed that the drain back from the turbo is leaking a bit... under boost would it be higher pressure for the oil drain back? any help would be great!!!

If thats leaking it's probaly squirting on the turbine housing and burning. Thats what your smelling.

The only gasket is where the flange bolts to the CHRA. I cannot see the leak, so I can't help you out.
Try replacing the gasket. The whole gasket set for installing a turbo is around $10.00
