That's what I'm wondering. I've also heard that a little oil can make a lot of smoke. Has this turbo been rebuilt, before? If so, did it originally leak oil into the intercooler? If so, did you clean the intercooler out? I guess what I'm getting at, is there old oil in your intercooler, from a previous turbo failure?
