Default Holy SMOKES!

I cant figure out why my car is smoking severely. I just built the entire engine do to the fact that it was smoking.
I drove it an hour home from where I store it and all was fine up until the last ten minutes. The car started pouring smoke out of the exhaust. I dont know what to do.
The engine build information can be found here....

Ude lose's ROTM thread February 2012

Its at the point now as to where I cant even drive the car (not that I would in this state) without creating a smoke screne behind me.
My exhaust system is as follows, Lcr S3 3.5 to 3 inch O2 housing, 3 inch dp with electric cutout, stock SRT mid section, Sxt appearance package dual tip muffler.
At first I thought that there was oil trapped in the exhaust system and it was just burning off. But at the rate this smoke is coming out, I dont think that could possibly be the culprit anymore.
I have a brand new pcv valve, a catch can, and a inline check valve.
I also replaced the oil returnline gasket today.
I thought that maybe the oil seal in the turbo was bad. So i sent it out and got the 69x upgrade from Bob at F&F.
I read that the check valves occasionally go bad, so I removed that and it still smokes. Just not as bad.
I also checked the spark plugs and they were dry. #1 was a tad bit more dirty than the rest but nothing to be worried about.
I'm totally stumped as to what is making my car smoke like a freight train.

If anybody has any ideas please let me know.

Kind of got the same thing, but the problem is never constant. It will do it one day, then won't do it for 2-3 weeks.

I'm pretty sure its oil smoke.

The turbo inlet had a drip of oil on it.
the weird thing was that the v band clamp had oil in it.
I'm sooo confused

I bought the car new in 03. If I wasn't emotionally attached I would sell it and dump the money into my evo. That thing is an animal already, I wonder what it would be like with $6k into the engine
Who am i kidding, I would never get rid of my SRT no matter how bad it pisses me off sometimes.
I also read a thread from AGP that does not recomend using a check valve at all. Especially inline with a pcv valve.

I took the v band clamp off of the turbo/manifold yesterday and there was oil in it,as much oil as that little clamp can hold. I cleaned it and reinstalled.
Today the car is still smoking. I took the muffler off to see if that may have had unburnt oil in it and drove the car. Car is still smoking. I reinstalled the muffler.
I took the V band clamp off of the turbo/manifold again today. Has oil in it again.
Im no expert but I think oil is somehow getting past the turbo and getting into the manifold and creating smoke coming out of the exhaust.
This is a fresh turbo that i received from bob an F&F less than a week ago.
I dont know what to do.
Basically there is oil getting past the turbo somehow.
What would you all assume the problem is?

Yeah man, I hope he takes care of me. The turbo has 50-60 miles on it the most. Never went past 8-10lbs of boost.
I have never even gone wot on my new engine build yet.
Soo disappointed, I am beginning to grow tired taking this turbo in and out of the car.
