Like Prospeeder said, sounds like the turbo is shot. You can usually take out the O2 sensor and use a boroscope to view the turbine. Or pull off the inlet snorkel to the compressor housing and see the turbo wheel. It will usually be loose and oily when the turbo is blown.

I had the same issue, replaced the turbo, things seem to run fine for a while, but then started white smoking again and I have massive amounts of coolant in the engine oil that I can't seem to figure out where its coming from and my compression numbers are good..well, maybe not great, but here they are...would this indicate a blown HG?

yes. If you can imagine, the head warps from the middle, so being the middle 2 are lower, indicates that yes it warped the head or blew the gasket. Really nothing else except the oil cooler is going to put coolant in the oil. But if its actually burning it. and its not the turbo. yea head
