    Can the Gearbox produce smoke?

    Hey all,
    I've got some smoke building up while i boost and it happens only sometimes, the funny part is before the car starts to smoke i hear some strange noise thats probably coming from the gearbox...
    Is this familiar by anyone in here?
    I cant describe the noise as you can not hear it that loud but if i listen carefull i can hear it.

    I have a Z20LET with LEH turbo and EDS agressive Remap (250 HP).

    Depends on where it's coming from. The gearbox normally doesn't have any openings to emit smoke from.

    Odd noise is more than likely passenger side inner CV joint, which is part of the driveshaft, really common for them to get knackered and play up on lowered turbo models with ZLET engines, at least on the MK4 this seems the case anyway.

    Obviously could be something else, but i'd suspect this, tend to make abit of a chattering, very odd noise when they start to play up, can often be heard more if your driving with a wall at the passenger side and youve got the passenger window down.

    Smoke, sounds like a possibly oil leak from the engine, or could easily be the turbo, think we all know just how common it is for these things to start burning or leaking oil..
