Question about 1992 Toyota Celica
I agree WANT33s. This sounds like Blow-By in the cylinders. This is a rebuild situation. I would look for a used motor as opposed to trying to rebuild the one you have. Also, learn to take your foot out of the TURBO! That's what caused the problem to begin with. The power is fun, but it comes at a cost. This is the cost.
To test this, just do a compression test. If you get any cylinders come up under 170psi, your rings are shot and\or the cylinders have "footballed". Oh, and invest some coin in Synthetic motor oil for the replacement. Turbos wear out conventional oil FAST! It's that loss of viscosity that causes your rings and cylinder walls to wear out ahead of their time.
Check the compression and list what you find out.

This problem is called blow-by.. There could be a few different things that have caused it but the cure is the same... New piston rings are needed..
Probably pay to rebuild or replace the whole engine.
