oil in rocker cover breather

Where is the likely origin of oil in the rocker cover breather? The inlet system is loaded with oil, i do not feel any play in the turbo inlet side and there is no smoke when starting.

Blow by. The breather system on these isnt great at separating oil and even the best engines have oil here. You can clean it or ignore it or fit a catch can if its worth the effort
Sanding your knuckles before starting work can help. That way you cant skin them
