    smokes from turbo.

    Yesterday morning, when i started to engine in 3 minutes later i saw that there was a smoke comes from turbo and manifold place. i though that 2 week before my turbos oil return pipe had hole. And car had oil leak after i fixed it there was no problem in this pipe. but as i sad before yesterday morning there was a smoke and it comes from turbo and manifold place. added to this situation there was white smoke comes from exhaust. i think my turbo has gone. i waiting your answers if my turbo has gone, i thinking to buy an vxr turbo one. for vxr turbo do i need to have remap?

    Sounds like mine mate but i dont get smoke from exhaust its probs the turbo seals.

    Apparently free flow exhausts which get rid of alot of back pressure cause them to blow
