    White smoke is almost a sure indicator the turbo is dead.

    burning oil can often look white, but i think its probably just condensation.

    If its just steam vapour then its normal, if its solid white smoke then we are talking either you have over filled the oil or more likely the turbo. Also check the oil that its not gone creamy as this could mean another issue.
