is there oil in all 4 exhaust ports on the head?

No oil in the manifold.
After further inspection yesterday there was minimal oil if any in the exhaust ports. Just normal carbon.

maybe you just have residue left over from the previous failure?
honestly based on everything you've done and examined, I'd bolt it all back together, warm it up, check for EXTERNAL LEAKS, then take it for a good long drive and see if it doesn't clear up. you probably might want to consider a seafoam treatment as well.

I am going to remove the intake side today and see how it looks
Im honestly scared to drive it anywhere for a long period of time. All i need is for a cop to get behind me. Im sure ide get a ticket for some reason. Also i need a new inspection sticker.

sent you a PM richie.

I still think there has to be some other underlying issue going on here, but if it does come back to us I will post up all the blueprinting data so everyone would know it's good. I just find it really hard to believe it would be bad, again, after we just checked it....

either way, we will at least rule out the turbo from this conundrum..

I didn't see this asked yet, but what size oil feed line are you using? I remember reading somewhere that some guys were having problems with smoke because the feed line was too big.

Its a mopar stage 3 with Bob's 69X upgrade.
i was considering putting an oem turbo in there. But then i realized it wouldnt work because I had to shorten the oil return line to fit the s3r turbo in there as stated in the S3 install instructions.

Here is a pic I took of the S3 turbo pic I took while it was installed without the manifold installed. Notice the oil on the blade. Also what is the torque spec for the top oil bolt?

To me it looks like your oil feed line is leaking. Have you inspected the banjo fitting for cracks? Have you inspected the banjo bolt, that could be cracked and leaking as well...
