Yes, my seal was marginal on the street driving because you were not under constant boost for extended periods like on track. After a 20 minute track session and the car sat and cooled off for 1.5 hours, upon restarting it was like a fog machine for about 3-4 minutes at idle until it cleared up. It also did not smoke while on track.
you really have to investigate one item at a time to make sure they are functioning properly. Process of elimination. In the meantime this is educating you on the function of each component of the system.
