hi could be possible that turbo seals are leaking on mid housing and engine is sucking oil straight in and running on it, hence switching off makes no difference. also check your oil level some vehicles if over filled will exhibit the same problem until excess oil is burnt off. or if vehicle is a diesel could be you have boost control unit that that has seal gone allowing fuel into air side and sucking it straight into engine.

Will the wind ever stop blowing?

The wind has not stopped before but it can stop if we have no weather. For example, there would be no clouds, no rain,snow,hail,or other natural disaster, also the sky would not be blue. Most people say,"oh feel that the wind stopped"! But for the wind to stop there would be no weather and the earth would stop orbiting around the sun or on it's axis. There is a 99.9% chance that the wind would stop blowing.
