So I did some searching on this but not much help. I installed a turbo back exhaust with a catless dp the other day. Flashed stage II with my ap. Everything seemed fine. Ive read that the car will smoke after a new exhaust install for a little while. So heres my problem. Ive driven the car over 100 miles and I still have a crap load of smoke from exhaust, only at idle, and after the car warms up a little. My concern is I would have thought the smoke would have stopped by now. Ive checked oil and im not loosing any. Checked coolant and its not loosing any. I don't see any oil around the turbo. Any ideas or should I just wait it out a little longer to see if it stops before I worry. Sorry for the story book. Any help is appreciated.

My Invidia TBE smoked more than an old lady playing penny slots. It lasted for a few hundred miles. Its nothing more than packing oils and flux residues burning off.

My nameless axleback smoked for 100 miles then went away pretty quick after that. Stuff burning off.
