Is this too much loop in my drain hose??? Pic inside

I am getting a ton of smoke from my downpipe area, it was coated @ B&G and then I wrapped it and painted it with the paint yoru supposed to use for wrap.
I am not sure if its just the coating/paint burning in or if its oil backing up into the turbo

I havent seen any boost yet but the smoke was pourign out of the cowl hood

I cant really get it higher because of the sway bar but it only goes up maybe a 1/4"



Any advice is appreciated
Thanks

Looking at the pic on my phone it does not look like too much of a bend. I would think its the paint stuff when i wrapped mine i jist wrapped it with no paint.

Is there any room to go to the inside of your crossover pipe?

It looks like it dips just below the fitting on the pan. I would try to run it a little different if you can. Are you set on running a sway bar?

It does just slightly, is that really that big of a deal?

That should be fine. My drain is worse than that and I've had no problems.
Your exhaust will cook for a while. First time you really get it hot with some boost it really will smoke. After it's been heat cycled several times it should be fine and quit smoking.

If the oil was not draining out of the turbo it would push the seals of the turbo and leak into the compressor or exhaust housing. If that was the case it would be leaking into the exhaust. And the exhaust would be smoking. Not the exhaust pipes. If you do not see oil on the piping or exhaust housing you should be fine.

The paint needs to get hot a few times to cure. It will smoke for a little bit. My ceramic coating smelled like pancakes when we first started the car. lol After driving it a few times the fumes went away.
