    Unhappy Smoking zlet @ 90 degrees??

    Over the last few days Ive noticed that my sri turbo has been smoking a little from the exhaust once the temperature gauge hits 90 degrees.

    Its a grey/white type of smoke.

    I had my vxr turbo fitted about 1k ago.

    Any ideas guys as im getting a bit worried

    No loss of coolant atall. The car takes its normal time to heat up and sits as normal when driving but when you stop and it warms up to 90 degrees it begins to smoke a little then the fan cuts in and smoke disapears for a short while.

    Headgasket was done just after then new turbo rougly 1k ago

    what could it be?

    a very tiny amount of waer can make a lot of smoke. Don't forget that when you turn your engine off the exhaust gets water condensating inside and outside so it can take ages for this to clear. You may have a tiny leak on the head gasket that will take an age to show in the reservoir. Get a leak test or a CO2 in the water bottle test done
    Be Happy

    There is not alot of smoke about the same amount as you have when you drive with condensation coming out the exhaust
