Oil smoke from exhaust after driving hard

My brother bought a saab 9-3 2.0 turbo and it has this problem where it will smoke out of the exhaust after driving hard/fast. Also when warm it smells like oil burning but i've searched the thing over 3 times and can't find a leak. Im thinking its the turbo?

UPDATE PLEASE READ: the car is now having another problem. It will accelerate slugishly in neutral but in gear it will not want to accelerate. If i give it very light throttle i can get it up to 2k and use the manual shift feature to get it up to 40 mph but i have to continuously tap the pedal to keep it there without it shutting off. The boost gauge goes into the red and then it takes all the power away. I think its the wastegate and it's over boosting and going into safety. Also i can hear the turbo spooling really high then winding down when the power goes away.
