post turbo build
Cars been running and driven a little bit now. Just haven't been FULLY tuned due to the afr being steady at idle then it jumps to 18 for a second for no reason. Anyway I got two vids at idle. One of the exhaust. I'm seeing if this is too much smoke for having no cat. And one of the afr gage.

Orrrrrrrrrr not

Weird that there is smoke coming out like that!
Should not be because of no cat...

sean did you break in your motor? the smoke could be because it is not broken in yet...

maybe a turbo seal... hopefully not.

ZXthrizzle05 09-13-2012 08:27 PM

Motors broken in and the engine was warmed up as far as I know. If it were a seal their would be a lot more smoke

It goes away after a brief drive. I think its the high oil psi when its at a colder start. There's no oil leakage round the turbo or any shaft play at all

Do you have oil temp and psi gauges? Maybe get some and you'd know where you're at?

ZXthrizzle05 09-14-2012 01:44 PM

I have both gages and when I start up I'm a lil above 80psi

Your A/F seems to stay a little on the rich side @ idle. You sure you don't have any leaks anywhere? If not your tune might need tweeked a little.

What kind of turbo to you have installed? You're going to see a high oil pressure at a cold start. That being said, an incorrect diameter drain line can be causing you smoking issue. How do you have the drain line ran? pics?
