Well I'm getting alot of smoke sometimes. ok as for color its white but I'm not sure if its coolant. sometime it smells sweet but most of the time its nasty as hell. its strange because it could just start smoking when driving around. could this be turbo related? there a big sputter right before boost but i could push right though but as of today I need to rev the car high to get past it now. I had the afc tuned on the dyno so that should be good. Any ideas of what i should look for? The car had perfect compression like 6 months ago I'm guessing I should do another check right?

I don't know all that much about turbo's but it certainly sounds like a coolant issue. I would imagine the coolant could be getting into the intake charge at the turbo. Keep an eye on the coolant level. Guess I'm not much help, sorry.

is there something i should be looking for. It looks like white smoke but I'm not sure if its coolant burning because the smell is real rancid. I'm guessing oil?
