Default help smoke coming out of hood scoop ?

I think my turbo may be going out. I am going to cheak it out tonight. My Question is could it be the oil fiting on the turbo or would you guys think it is the turbo.

You won't know until you look. You're just asking people to guess and there's no way they can provide you the correct answer unless you provide more information.

I had smoke coming out of my scoop the other day but it was the bolt penatrating oil burning off cause I installed UP & DP that day.

So like Calvin said...it could be a number of things.

I had a similar issue on my stock set-up. I started a thread about it a few months ago with quite a few responses:
http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...ht=smell+smoke
It hasn't happened since and neither the dealer nor I have been able to find the source of the leak (it's intermittent). Unfortunately, I think my turbo may be heading south as a result. The other day I got on it a bit and was greeted by the ever dreadful "screech" sound from the turbo. Unfortunately, this too is intermittent and not easily repeatable (it only happened briefly a couple of times). I will be mentioning it to my dealer when I take it in for the "30k".

I'd be willing to bet the dealer plays the "abuse card" on you.

.....I see no reason to jump to that conclusion. My dealership has been great and the issue is well documented with the service manager. The only trouble I see is if the problem doesn't become apparent (or easily replicated) prior to 36,000 miles. It's possible they might not cover it at that point......I really don't know. I will be discussing all of this with the Svc Mgr next week (or the week after).
