I have no error codes for low boost or anything and no check engine lights. I think my turbo is fine except for the turbo seal and I'm worried about the loss of oil and the smoke from my exhaust. Does anyone have experience like mine or can someone tell me the symptoms of a bad turbo seal. Thanks
im fbo+meth cl dps and sec cat delete and same symptoms as urs,other than the smoke car is running stronger than ever
most likely is turbo seals
Yea my car is running great other than the smoke and the smell. And the high oil consumption is what worries me most
how many miles on the car?
mine had 39k when i put dps and it started as soon as i deleted sec cats
Im at 59k. Ive only had dps for about 6k miles i think and ive had full catback exhaust for about 30k miles. Smoke started right after i had my dps installed...i thought it might of been residue burning off but it kept happening. Im gonna have to go back to stock downpipes and intake but i dont have a stock exhaust to use so i hope i can leave my exhaust on
