ok I just noticed after a quick spin with a mate behind me that there is some blue/whit smoke coming from my exhaust at high revs (4500 and above). I have had a look in the intercooler pipes and there is some oil residue in there.
About a month ago I did a compression test and the results were:
No.1 - 157
No.2 - 154
No.3 - 150
No.4 - 150
No.5 - 155
No.6 - 150
I don't think the results are too bad, but could it be my piston rings. I don't have an oil catch can installed, but I wouldn't think the engine would throw that much oil into the inlet. Could it possible be an oil seal on my turbo?

Any help?

Will probably be more likely be your turbo oil sills.

Yeah there fine, they ideally have to be 10% within each other.

Would the fact that the oil seal in the turbo is gone affect my boost. I get a lot of spiking lately high in the rev range.

Also how hard is it to do the oil seal and would i be better to get the turbo high flowed at this point.

Yeah if the oil sills are gone it would affect the boost.

If you've got the funds then yes this would be a good time to get the turbo rebuilt with steel internals by a reputable company.
