...those at the meet, I think the oil is indeed leftovers from the faulty turbo drain gasket. No more oil since I swapped it out before the meet... but a new problem.

Sometimes at stop lights and more often when I shut down, I get smoke coming from the turbo area... don't know if it's something to do with my ported heads (ttypewe4jim) thought perhaps that, or something to do with the turbo (but I got this te44 last yr straight from limit) or if it's jsut the leftover oil burning....

Any thoughts?

The reason why I asked about the heads is that evry freaking set of heads that Ive gotten with bronze guides in them smoke :rant: Ive had no luck with them but its probely the seals for the turbo :mad:


*edit*

We now use Viton seals :6:

Explain the play in the wheel. Side to side, or up and down?

Is there oil in the intercooler pipes? How about the downpipe?

Don't know if I can do that, since I blew a headgasket and then the motor (crank n rods), so I doubt they'd honor that since I didn't tow it AS SOON AS the headgasket and motor symptoms occured (limped it home) which I understand....

We'll see what happens...
