Erl Leaks - Thoughts?

A small oil leak began to drip onto the exhaust downpipe on my brothers S60R. There is no visible oil on top of the turbo, only on the very bottom of it. We replaced the oil-drain gasket and it still leaks.

The angle gear for the AWD system is directly in the way so this was not a fun task. That paper gasket was very brittle, and looked like it had been leaking when it was 1 piece still. After replacing it, there was no leakage as we refilled the coolant and gave it some revs. But after a drive, and me thoroughly using some boost, there was quite a bit of drippage. Maybe I didnt get the bolts tightened down enough?

Advice welcomed

In better news, the engine is almost out of my LS. Between working 50 hours a week and weather not always permitting, I haven’t had much time. Just have to remove the hood and pluck it out.
