    Have you checked the rest of the system for air leaks? How much oil is there in the intake system and what kind of smoke is it? Blue black / oil fuel? If you look at the boost pipes do any of them look wet with oil around the joints?

    white smoke is usually either coolant, or unburned fuel.

    Coolant suggests head gasket, unburned fuel suggests an injector pump or timing issue.

    It could also be oil, in some situations burning oil looks white/grey, other times its blue.

    What year is the audi ? Up to 2000 they had a engine breather which used to clog, later ones use a modified "venturi" effect breather which does not block anymore. If the turbo is leaking oil from the exhaust side then it's the breather or the oil seals are shot. Pop the oil filler cap whilst the engine is running and lf there's pressure built up then the filter is blocked. Buy the later style for the AKE engine...

    adam is correct, i had the A6 V6 tdi 2.5 and that started chucking out clouds of white smoke, never dropped into limp mode. turned out to be the breather once it was changed all was right in the world again

    take the oil filler cap off with it running and place it back on (without twisting it to lock it on) hold it there with your finger. slowly remove the pressure on the cap that your holding it on with. just as you fully remove your finger off it does it start puffing crank case gasses out?

    dose it have oil leaks a plenty?

    tbh as adamss24 said if the breather filter unit has never been changed to the newer type then it needs changing anyway.
    its located the between the vee. it looks like a plastic cap with a metal section on top of it with the breather pipe coming off it. if you bob the engine cover off and look below the back of the injection pump its there. the egr pipe/valve is slightly in the way but theres just two 30 torx bolts holding it in. not hard to change on the b5s.

    The new breather will solve the smoking issue it won't fix your low power issue ! The turbo needs cleaning internally- the VNT mechanism clogs with time and will blow the boost control solenoid. Get it cleaned whilst in pieces and make sure you get the later breather for AKE/BAU/BCZ/BDG engines...

    Would not bother too much with the inter cooler pipes just make sure there is no oil dripping out of them. You will need to split the hot side -held with 6 hex bolts- and clean the adjusting mechanism- take loads of pictures and make a mark with paint/tipex of the mating faces- will help lining them up on refitting. DO NOT undo the center nut that holds the compressor wheels onto the shaft- don't think you're daft but i've seen it before- it will get out of balance and will destroy the turbo in no time ! On the 150 Bhp the boost control solenoid is on the driver side next to the fuel filter- it's the valve with vacuum pipes sticking out- follow the hose from the turbo actuator !
