    Z20let has taken up smoking

    Hi people, i'm kris and this is my first posting as a new member to the site. I own a 2001 Astra coupe edition running a z20let with stage 4 courtney kit, vxr turbo and approx 300bhp.
    Recently I have noticed it has started to smell like it is burning oil, especially when left idling and on start up. There is a small amount of White smoke coming from the exhaust which is concerning me. I carried out a compression test to eliminate possibilities of what could be causing it.
    To be honest I can't seem to find where I can buy an haynes manual for it.
    Does anybody have any clues as to what figures I should be getting from the test?
    My results are

    cylinder. Reading ( lb/in)

    1. 165
    2. 170
    3. 160
    4. 170

    Any help is much appreciated.

    Many thanks
    Kris
