    Smoke near Turbo compressor

    Have not driven car much since I bolted on GTX turbo to my BP. It runs and drives well but I am experiencing smoking when I pop the hood near the turbo compressor. Not sure if it could be exhaust leak, problem with turbo itself? Any thoughts

    Almost certainly something leaking onto the hot side. If the shaft seals fail, you have armageddon coming out the tailpipe.

    That may be the cause, the valve cover is leaking so some oil is making its way to the downpipe/turbo area. Just drove car home 50 miles without a problem so hopefully that means it's nothing major

    I just looked at this. That looks like steam. Do you have a burnt oil smell?

    looks like the same **** that happened to my PGT, check for coolant leaks by the fittings on the turbo.
