The oil may be ring blow by (all us turbo owners expierence it)
The oil finds it's way into the intake via the PCV fittings (there are two) that go into the MAF to turbo pipe (the corrugated rubber pipe with the plastic can on it)
A new PCV valve from Subaru (aftermarkets are bogus) may solve this problem.
BTW the oil galleries on your turbo are inside the cooling passages, the oil would end up in the coolant not the intake.
Getting a turbo rebuilt is normaly a job for a professional as the balance and sealing is critical due to the RPM the turbine shaft rotates at.
Do as you wish.
Hope this helps

oh... as far as i have seen, the coolant passages are cast iron, and they couldnt get oil in them, cuz its just a little galley through solid metal. the coolant has no contact with seals, just freez plugs.

You NEED a ridiculously thin pair of snap ring pliers to get 4 snap rings out. Also, there are some allen or torx screws (don't remember) that are loctited in there, try not to gouge them up, or they will never come out. Unless you have a tig welder.
Kit comes w/ new hydrodynamic bushings, snap rings, trust plates, metallic seals, some other dohickies, and new little bolts to replace the ones you will probably destroy. Index the compressor wheel to the shaft, and she will work. Did this for an Xt turbocharger that eventually ended up on a *ahem* Honda.
BTW it still leaked cuz the cartridge was worn out, no amout of rebuilding could have fixed that. But it made 15 psi.

IOW, after fixing the oil consumption problem, you'll want to evaluate your cats to see if they still flow OK.

Cat doors are your friend; no kitty litter (except for under your car)
Rodents and rice-stealing critters are banished by hungry cats.
