    new turbo fitted help!!

    hi, ive just put an vxr turbo on, my old unit bearings and oil seals went.
    ive got thick white/blue smoke out of my zorst,
    been for about 3 mile drive and its cleared slightly! (had to get it off the road before i get pulled)
    will this clear in time? or has the oil seals gone in the new one.

    it drives nice, and comes onto boast strong, so i dont think its an engine prob! im thinking its just the amount of oil went into the system..

    glasgow_stu had smoke from his coupe for about 2-3 weeks after fitting a new turbo to his.
    it cleared itself but best take the intercooler and boost hoses off and give them a good clean out.
