Well do you think the motor is gone? Had to go to a Funeral this last weekend in Sacramento, i'm in LA. About 425 miles, pull into town and look back cant see any cars behind me because of all the smoke. Changed oil there. Smokes real bad when you let of the gas at freeway speeds. And now that i'm home seams to be smoking at idle too. Ran compression check 1 - 120 2 130 3 120 4 125 5 130 6 132.5 Car still has great power did not run over 180 degrees good oil pressure at 65 i had 45lbs. Anything else I should look at? :confused:

Ok very little oil in the up pipe and not much in the intercooler. I had a lot more in there with the old turbo and it did not smoke. Any other ideas? :confused:

I think Steve is referring to the exhaust side seal---maybe pull off your downpipe/elbow?
