Although I think that checking for shaft play everytime you open the turbine or compressor for any reason is a good habit to get into, I don't think it is something he needs to spend time cracking into just yet unless he.is.already going to have things apart. I told him too just keep an eye on his oil consumption and the smoking for a week or two to see what it does. Since the slight smoking didn't start until he had the AVCS cel, while it is possible that the oil got slowed enough to starve the turbo bearings of oil, odds are that there just was an increase in pressure which caused a buildup of blowby or allowed some to push past the turbo seals. If there isn't any increase in oil consumption, then he probably doesn't need to go through the hassle of oulling the downpipe and turbo inlet off to inspect for shaft play.

Maybe, maybe not...give him a couple days to respond. Sometimes people don't log on here for a few days. I have had people take like 5 days to respond after I bought something on here.
