my buddy had bad oil seals and it acted weird. it would sometimes smoke like a train, and other times it would be just barely visable. Have you checked your Downpipe or tailpipe, which ever you run , for excessive oil contamination?(wet or pools of oil)

it wasnt spitting oil when i was running a open down pipe. some one else says it could be head gasket, or my oil drain line? head gasket makes some since. i tested compreesion in the d/s today all was well d/s will be saved for a later day.

white smoke could also be raw fuel!

I had a injector driver go in my fast system and it smoked like a freight train!

first and easiest thing to check is the oil return from turbo to pan.

make sure hose is 5/8" or larger

every inch is downhill no uphill or horizontal sections

pan is tapped above oil level

fitting at pan is horizontal and not tapped at an angle

line isnt kinked


also if you have a high out put oil pump you could be pumping too much oil into the turbo and it cant drain fast enough.

If your feed line is larger than 3an it will need a restrictor

+1.

the oil coming out of the turbo into the drain line is almost like foam it needs to be sloped right. some peiple drill a hole thru the frame right under the turbo to get it perfect.
