turbo smoking

hi , i was out in my subaru this morning , after about 5 min smoke started to come out the scoop , i replaced all the rocker cover seals , i thought thats it fixed , i thought it was oil dripping on my headers or my up pipe was leaking so i replaced that as well, no joy . still something leaking . the smoke is only around the turbo area and coming out the chimney above the turbo ,so can it be the turbo oil feed pipe ? is it a easy fix and how do you go about changing it over . thanks for your time . vic
