Valve Guides.. If it smokes for longer than 2 minuets on startup thats probably not a good sign. Also listen for excessive valve train noise. A click click click at reasonable disable after warm up is OK. But a tap tap tap is a bad sign. I forgot what cylinder # but on turbos these valves are always the first to go out of adjustment. Also check under the car for evidence of the car being placed on lift and improperly lifted. Tire change places are really bad about damaging the undercarriage of these cars.
