so as I don't abandon my thread w/o posting the resolution I wanted to add an update.
clark turner recommended I run seafoam through the car as a possible resolution to knock in my upper ranges.
so last night I did as recommended and although I did not get very much smoke...it did come out in two places!
out of my tail pipe as expected but also out of the turbo area.
joy.
so it looks like I have an exhaust leak. it was very hard to tell where it was coming from exactly due to my heat shields all blocking the line of sight but I suspect it is the turbo to DP connection.
going to remove all the shields and find the exact source as soon as I can.
odd thing is it doesn't sound like I have an exhaust leak there, or smell like I have an exhaust leak there, but there was def a decent amount of smoke coming out of there.
