Hi Everyone.
My car has recently started smoking (oil) on cold start and on over run/coming off throttle. I’m lead to believe this is a worn turbo?
It’s the standard turbo and has only started smoking since being dynod and stage 1 tuned. It made 290 atw @0.9bar.
Just wondering what people’s thoughts are? The car sometimes also revs up on full boost but doesn’t pull, as if the clutch is slipping. I’ve replaced the clutch but it still does it which makes me think this could also be turbo related. Any help appreciated.
thanks

A bit of tuning will quite often spell the demise of a std turbo, the extra bit of boost pushes it over the edge, either time for a turbo rebuild or upgrade.

Thanks for getting back to me Tricky. I’m going to pull the pipes off in the next couple of days to see if there is shaft play and any oil residue. I was going to replace the turbo at some point anyway just not yet. Hybrid on the way I guess 😁
