Are you blowing oil...or did you do a leakdown test and determine that your valves are in need of some CPR?
Chuck,
Yes, not always smoking, but enough to be bothersome. She smokes every so often on startup and when under full boost. Inspection of the IC intake indicates oil leakage, must be from turbo seals (I suspect). I am thinking with a turbo/IC update and 82k miles the valves and valve seats must be tired.
Thanks again,
