Just recently put a new T04b turbo from CX racing on my car and i started it and it smoked the blue kind. after shutting down the engine i took a gander behind the turbo(tubine side) and notice i had Black oil like substance.



started the car again and it continued to smoke. i have no exhaust pipe on the turbo missing a Vband flange, but anyways is it something i need to worry about



its not pouring out its just enough to make the exhaust smoke. and its not as bad as i rev the engine, i was told to check the plugs to see if oil was on them but havnt gotten there yet just wanted another opinion.



the previous turbo blew seals ( so i let it sit in cold *** weather for two months until i got a new turbo) , so would it be oil from bad turbo traped in the headers and the exhaust blowing that oil threw the exhaust?



any opinions help.



if you need more info let me know

If the car hadn't been started for that long until the new turbo was put on, it could just be residual oil from the old leaking turbo. But i would still check your plugs and keep an eye on youre oil pressure and level.



Its possible that you got a defective turbo from CXracing. It seems like its 'hit or miss' with ebay turbos... Some people have really good experiences and make tons of power with them, and others have really bad experiences. Either way, i'd let the car warm up a little bit and idle for a few minutes. If its still smoking profusely after a while, well then you know you have a problem.

Sure thing, no problem.

You might wanna run it with just the down pipe when its warming up... that way if the turbo really is leaking, your cats/mufflers wont soak up all that oil.

Good luck, keep us posted

Thing is the previous owner welded the whole exhaust solid so cant run it from the down pipe only! the previous owner didnt know much how to fix things right did it all ghetto!

That would be my guess. he had a autozone uniform on, so that kind of explains alot. lol so i also had another question..... how hard is it to delete the abs brake system. i was also lookin into deleting the ac pump and power steering(<---- maybe) just lookin for less pulley resistance!

let me know what ya think!

I recently swapped over to non-abs. Its a little bit of a pain in the ***, but if youre abs unit was leaking like mine was, its definately worth it.

You're gonna need a brake booster, master cylinder, proportioning valve, and the front hard lines (all from a non-abs car).



I have a leftover proportioning valve, master cylinder, and a few of the lines if youre looking for them. Their not pretty but they're usable. Just taking up room in my garage shelf, so if you're interested let me know.





I took out my a/c but kept power steering. It really doesnt free up any serious power by removing them, but it does clean up the engine bay and makes repairs a bit simpler.

awsome i just might have to delete the abs. but not any time soon! mine aint leaking at all that i know of right now! gotta focus on getting it back onto the street so i dont keep steeling my girls car! but ill forsure let you know if i want them parts! my clutch keeps bleeding off and loosing pressure as well. after pumping the pedle a couple times i went and looked at the slave and the bleeder screw was leaking. i was on my way into town and didnt see if it was loose or anything. but if soo what size is the screw if you knew by chance!



and i was lookin at the engine earlier and the a/c was already taken out but the guy did a shitty job. just ripped the pump off and blocked the lines and didnt take them out! kinda pissed me off! but oh well.



ps is gonna stay in. i had a plymoth laser a couple years ago and i took the power steering out and it was just a pain in the *** to drive around!
