Sounds like a head gasket.

How are the oil & coolant levels? Is the coolant system holding pressure even when cold? If oil is leaking out of the exhaust joints then that ain't good, I'm thinking possible turbo failure or an internal engine fault, as has been said, head gasket may be possible but this isn't the usual type of head gasket failure found with the PD engines. Are the crankcase breather pipes all clear?

The main breather is attached at the rear left hand corner of the rocker cover (as you look into the engine bay) and connects into the airbox to turbo feed pipe- see the parts diagram here (number 18). I'm not sure if there are any other breather pipes, if there are I can't find them in the diagrams.

How is the vehicle running whilst in this state? Is it down on performance & running badly?

Only the one breather as stated, when you say pressure is massive how have you come to that conclusion.
There will be an amount of  crankcase pressure on high mileage engines.

With VCDS lite (full version) need a code clearing or want to scan for faults in the north kent area, PM me.
