    could be seals on turbo, or maybe valve stem seals? turbo seals arn't something you wanna do yourself unless you are pretty handy with the tools, valve stem seals are same story really, cheaper to get a vxr turbo than recon a standard unit and the valve seals will cost you the price of a head gasket job + seals + 1 hr labour so bout 5-600 quid.
