black smoke and fuel heads (turbo newbie)

I was hoping you guys could lead me knowledge

I have an '88 turbo all original with 47K miles. I've had it for about 8 months and lately it has been blowing smoke during spirited acceleration both before and during boost and both warm or cold. It still has the original US spec fuel system with fuel head and my wrench has told me that if I switch to a euro head my problems will likely be solved.

While I'm waiting to track one down I would sure like to understand the details of these turbo cars better than I do. So that I can understand what might lie ahead on the slippery slope although since it's an M505 I will probably keep my mods to a minimum.

Knowledge is power and right now I'm pretty much of a wimp....
