i am smoking again...not nearly as bad yet though...and i am not sure its the turbo...may be the engine...need to get a catch can to eliminate the possibilities....
reason i think this may help is because of the massive amount of blow by i have noted since owning the car. any time i take the intercooler off, there is a small amount of oil in the 'hump' tube between the intercooler and throttle body. i have found this any time i take the intercooler off, no matter what turbo i have, or condition of that turbo.
the smoking started today, coming home from work. it has not smoked since getting this turbo on this past Saturday. i have done freeway, city, agressive driving, etc. I am at the point of swapping the wastgate actuator and adjusting it to the needed 15psi. i was planning on putting the MBC on it tonight and start making adjustments and logs to get to my goal of 20psi through redline.
valve stems have never been an issue, and remember, the leak check showed no leaks at all.
