    smoke /metal ring in intercooler pipe with pics

    my zafira gsi has just started to smoke , firstly when waiting behind some 1 in a petrol station car just ticking over when i went to move i seen a puff of smoke from the exhaust , then again after filling up went to pull away and seen another , since then the car is randomly smoking and the oil check light has come on , iv removed the top inter cooler pipe which seems to have excessive amounts of oil in it also when i removed the lower intercooler pipe again seems to have excessive oil and also had a metal ring off something init (looking at the rebuild kits it seems to be part of the turbo),
    im presuming its the turbo seals gone so have been looking at a new turbo/rebuild kits and think il be going for the home rebuild due to the costs of a new unit and the fact that my boss at work is handy with a spanner , basically can any 1 tell me what the metal ring is from my lower intercooler pipe and where i can get a kit to refit the turbo after its been rebuilt , i presume il need new studs/nuts and manifold gasket is there anything else i will need ?or is there a complete kit i can buy to save me having to source loads of seperate parts ,
    thanks
