Sounds more like an injector dumping fuel than oil.

Are you losing an oil level?

Oil doesn’t seem to go down but I pulled the down pipe it does have a decent amount of oil in the pipe I didn’t get a chance to check anything else

Well, if it is much oil then it might be time to rebuild the turbo or go w/ a new one then.

Have you checked for codes?

ForScan Lite (for your phone) is a great tool, reads codes well!

The only code it throws is a egr code but that’s gone if there is oil in the up-pipes would that mean a cylinder issue

More common for fuel and soot to mix in the up-pipe. It can look like oil.

I had oil in my pipe caused by a closed off crankcase vent...excess pressure inside the engine pushed the oil past the shaft seal on the turbo and right out the pipe. I've also seen the excess fuel mixed with soot. Be certain what you're dealing with before you go changing parts. I swapped out a turbo because I didn't have time to wait for a rebuild kit, when all I had to do was unblock the crankcase vent. Others have replaced 8 injectors when it was an EGR cooler problem. Point is, it can get expensive very quickly, so diagnose carefully.
