Oil Leak Inlet Manifold

Hi all, recently purchased a 2010 1.6 TDI Estate. Noticed oil seeping from the around the inlet manifold. The car has recently had the turbo replaced due to overboosting, replacement of rocker valve cover, new intercooler and new gaskets on the inlet manifold.

Having had the work done, we still have oil seeping from the manifold. Anyone any experience of this before?

Any ideas warmly received!

Are you sure the turbo got replaced and isn't overboosting? If you aren't overboosting there will be a regular amount of blowby in the plumbing but shouldn't leak out of the intake mani, it's not coming from cam girdle? Do you have pics?
