I put a turbo kit on my 02 Gt and took it to get tuned. Noticed some white smoke coming from exaust during tune. Took car home and started smoking big time, called tuner and explained, the tuner and I thought it was a blown HG. Shop replaced gaskets and resurfaced heads and used arp head studs. Picked car up and drove home with NO smoke coming out during the Hour trip home. Turned car on the next morning and again the car starts to smoke, and car threw a p0113 code. At this point I did a comp test and all cylinders are above 150. Replaced Intake and added a 90 nitrous jet as a restricter to oil feed to turbo and smoke went away for 10 min. Turbo was rebuilt during build and could not see that being the problem. Has any one had an issue like this before. Any help would be appreciated.

I would cap the turbo oil feed and remove the turbo.... Let the car idle and see what it does... My experience with rebuilt turbos is that you only attempt a rebuild once.... Because there's always a issue.... What's the mystery spoke smell like? Coolant consumption? I mean the possibilities are endless ..... Video? Maybe a block pressure issue? Like I said provide more info

No Pcv valve system, just going to breathers. The smoke smells like fuel, but it's white and wont burn my eyes to bad.let the car run for a hour and did not notice any coolant loss. It also starts to smoke when it warms up and starts to idle rough. I datalogged some info with my sct tuner

V per 13.31-13.37
Ect. 182.000- 190.000
Fpdc. .212
Iat. 94.000-100.000
Rpm. 810.000
Spark. 11.000-20.000
Vspree. 0000
There are the ranges during idle when it's warmed up. Could it be the tune?

Could be the tune... But even if it was coolant it would only take a very small amount to make "smoke", think of how much steam a hot shower makes just off mist... And that water is no where neer engine exhaust temps would be where the coolant would make the conversation

after the car is warmed up you should not be getting any smoke. thick white smoke with a sweet smell to it is from coolant getting into the combustion chamber. it could easily be from a cracked block if its not coming from the intake or head gasket. if there is coolant getting into the exhaust it will be smoking "like a freight train". that is the only way you will get white smoke. a little white smoke at start up is normal from condensation in the exhaust. blue smoke is obviously oil getting into the chamber and black smoke is from too much fuel. A tune issue is not going to cause thick white smoke at idle

The car does not smoke during cold start idle. When car is warmed up and given part throttle or quick rev, car starts to smoke. Waste gate was tuned with 8psi spring and made 389 hp. Could that be enough to crack block.

Anything could crack the block.... Not even a power related issue. Post up a video man it's hard to make a call of it with out seeing it

HeiH, do you have any video of smoke.
sorry I don't, but my car when cold would not smoke when warm and idling it would smoke non stop. Drive your car around the block a couple of times let it warm up and smoke then cut it off you may be able to hear oil burning in the exhaust housing I could with mine

edit. Also if you have a wideband and its smoke from being rich your wideband should confirm it. Coolant should smell sweet and if its a headgasket passing coolant your rad should be overflowing and gushing coolant even when cold
