Just got my motor back together and took it for a test drive, man it runs awesome but after a few seconds of the turbo winding up, the turbo starts smoking,( I still have the hood of to monitor everything) I have a new oil feed line on it, and oil pressure seems fine, the motor has fresh oil in it, Any ideas out there?

oil leak? check the drain line carefully....they crack easily plus some of the gaskets don't seal well.

AND, you'll get a lot of smoke from all over the engine compartment after a fresh engine install. From the grease and oils on your hands, this gets on the headers, and turbo, and make for a lot of smoke for a while.

all the oil and paint that was on the exhaust stuff should have been burned off, i've had it running to test and tune everything and break in run time, one of my buddies brought up and interesting point, is there oil seals inside the turbo that might be leaking? The turbo sounds fine, just smokes bad after 5 seconds of winding up, and then it spits ALOT of smoke out the exhaust pipes behind me.
