    What do you define with some oil?
    Does the engine use oil?

    And when does it smoke white? at startup? or...
    Smoking while is not oil... it's your exhaust / coolant...

    'Some oil' in boost pipe is normal, absolutely lagged in oil means poorly turbo.
    As Xplod says, white smoke could mean coolant problems. What's the condition of the coolant/spark plugs?
