    turbo leak??

    lately if I put my foot down my car uses a lot of oil and then I get white smoke from the exhaust. just removed the pipe connecting to the maf and there is a sh*t load of oil residue on the maf and inside the pipe. so im guessing my turbo seals are leaking?

    White smoke sure seems like a turbo issue.

    Asked the same question myself not so long ago. Answer, only if you have the means to bench test the turbo at 22,000 rpm!
