Hello guyz. I found this oil leak on my s60 turbo.

This leak can effective boost pressure? There is the CBV valve?

Are you sure it's not the turbo to OTE coupler? Oil will leak around that and end up on the bottom of the turbo.

OTE = over the engine. It's the pipe that runs from the turbo and over the engine. The coupler between that pipe and the turbo can leak oil as it gets older. Makes an oily mess on the turbo.

The engine crankcase ventilation system has to be operating well, with all of the pieces and parts connected and clamped down, to prevent the smell of hot oil in the cabin. I can't tell from the photo if the turbo is losing a significant amount of oil. I know from personal experience that the crankcase ventilation system stops working, eventually, and that this results in oil seeping out in various locations. My S60 2.5T needed work on the crankcase ventilation system at 110K, or 176,000 Kilometers.

A bad PCV system can coat parts of the engine in oil. So, if it wasn't cleaned up, it will still smell like hot oil, even though the PCV was replaced. Usually, the area underneath the intake manifold is the worst.
