Check your Compression, that could give you an idea, of whether its motor, or turbo, also look at the oil itself, is it sooty?
Could be a variety of things. Work piston rings, leaving valve seals, Leaking exhaust side seal in the turbo charger.
Price, who knows... depends on what it is, and what combination of other parts you have to replace.
Sarcasm, is the bodies natural defense against stupid.

I'm sure I have some type exhaust leak in the front. When I open the hood n rev the motor smoke comes up around where the turbo is and also the back end of the motor under the eci ,can't pin point where its coming from
A lot of high powered boosted engines loose oil. They usually suffer from high crankcase pressure and push oil out the pcv of breather/catch can setup. If you have a stock intake setup that oil goes through the motor to get burned by design. There may not be anything actually wrong with your motor. A compression test wouldn't hurt though.
I found v8's...
