    Valve guides wouldnt stop boost mate.

    As i said in PM, if its dumping smoke when you come off boost it seriously leads to the turbo as the turbine side sucks oil though the seal and then obviously its burnt.

    Could be your oil is to thin?

    pull of the downpipe and have a look see if theres any oil in there and around the turbine, smoke on lift ff can be valve stem seals aswell,as already said that shouldnt cause boost issues tho.
