On smoking condition.
1)No oil on turbo compressor side
2)Oil in DP but
3)Started car with exhaust elbow off and ran awhile and no smoking.
4)Ran finger in tailpipe and they are very oily.

By running the car with elbow off with no smoking did this eliminate valve steams, headgasket,intake leak?
By no oil on compressor side did this eliminate turbo.

If the above is correct, I think I might of had a defective PVC that coated the exhaust system and I have not driven the car enough to burn it all out.
If this is correct, would it take a long time to burn out? It could not have been more than a 1/2 pint as I am not low on oil.

Pull the oil filler cap off when its good & hot " If its puffing smoke then your rings are shot" Sounds like your turbo is ok.

It sounds as if either it was your pcv or the exhaust side of the turbo seal is bad.

Now, if there was no smoke out of the turbo with the dp off, it would sound as if the oil is coming from the accumulation in the exhaust system at the moment...to me, anyway.

I would drive it and watch oil consumption...if it is not sucking up the oil, I would find something else to worry about!

How about fake wood siding?
I would like to find one of those old turbo charged ones to play with.
I used to have a web site of a guy who was running 12s with one. Carried all his kids to the track in it.

I am just making fun of you in general. Your typing is just as miserable as the rest of your traits.

Yes, I have been studying your miserable progress since I was a little kid.
