The rear main will leak more at speed since you have more crankcase pressure from blowby, forcing the oil out -- this is another thing to check -- if the hose or oil separator is plugged, you can blow oil out everywhere!

Any oil at all on the turbo means either exess blowby dripping out the intake hose or leaking oil pipes.

What type of oil do you have in there? Could you be suffering from overly thin oil hot?
