smoking issue update., after searching this site and other places, I took of the intercooler to have a look.
My upstart smoke issue is still there, it seems to be less on start up when I rev it up to 3000 rpm's before I shut it down on previous use.

Just now, the car has not been in use for 13 hrs. I removed the intercooler and the first thing I saw was a streak of oil from the intercooler down into the turbo. The next thing I saw was approximately 1/2 teaspoon of oil in the throttlebody resting nicely on top of the throttle valve (????).

Can any wise soul tell me why I have oil in my intercooler?
Maybe the turbo is not the issue anyway then?

I will also add to the equation that this is really the first time I have been using the car since I bought it 1.5 years ago. I have recently used the car on a regular basis for a month and a half.
