I have twin Detroit 6-71's In-Line. I was running at 1900 RPM when the port engine dropped the 700 RPM's and generated a huge cloud of consistent black smoke. I shut the engine and limped back to the dock. I tend to believe my problem is the Turbo, however, I removed the radiator cap and found oil mixed in the water (antifreeze). Can anyone help? Is it possible that the oil in the coolant is the result of a bad turbo?

Oil in the water could also be the figure "8" o-ring between the block and head.
