sounds like your blowing compression into the crank case. possible the orientation of the rings on the piston could be wrong if you put a piston pack into the engine. possible valves may not seat properly on the cylinder head or turbo seal is leaking boost into the oil return line or just the breather is clogged

My c15 is doing same thing and only have about 62 pounds of oil pres could that be the tourbo or a ring broke
