    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!

    Plenty of places out there that offer reconditioning services and new for old replacements at reasonable prices
