A compression test is only 1/2 of the equation, if you want to properly check engine condition you also need to perform a Cylinder Leakdown Test.
A Compression test shows the engines ability to Produce pressure, a Cylinder Leakdown test shows the engine ability to Hold pressure.
It will show if a problem is present in one or all cylinders, if the problem is related to rings/valves/head and block sealing.
If your issue is with the Oil Rings neither test will determine that.
Lets try to determine where the issue lies.
1)Remove all spark plugs, are any fouled with oil?
a)Which Cylinders?
2)Remove the charge piping from the turbo and throttle body, is oil present?
3)Is there oil in the air filter housing?
4)With the engine running and the oil cap removed is there blowby coming from the oil cap opening?
5)Is the PCV system properly connected and functioning with no collapsed/cracked/disconnected lines?
