Bad turbo seal.. again??
I've scanned the forums for a long time now and stay so busy I don't ever have time anymore. So recently i pulled my turbo and replaced the bearings and seals based of prior findings of blowing white smoke only after idle when pulling out thus the burning of oil. Still blowing smoke after the replacement of the bearings and seals with only 1500ish miles on the new parts.. Could the hotside housing where the seal seats be worn out, allowing the oil to pass through?
SCT livewire w/ Gearhead and Innovative tunes
4in mbrp exhaust
Wicked wheel 2 (installed at the same time as bearing and seal replacement)
JMS egt probe
:edit: blue spring also.
sinister coolant filter kit.
Ill keep adding parts as I remember
-All temps (oil,coolant) are within specs staying about 3-4degrees different when finally warmed up.
-EGT never getting above 900
-ICP psi @580 when full operating temps reached.
These 3 replaced within last 2k miles.
