Hard to tell from the photo, but it was sticky/oily residue. When I had previously removed the turbo it was completely dry

Still requires more diagnosis - could be an valve seal leaking oil, for example.

On topic though, the Kinugawa's are decent - but you get what you pay for.

I'm running the TD06SL2-18G, and it can reach 2Bar by 3800rpm in 4th - so they can spool quick.

BUT, I'm struggling to get more than 240-250atw on pump.

A similarly built engine was making 280 on pump with a DOM 2.5xtr.

I ended up putting my stock TD04 back on last night.

Hoping this stops the smoking - I noticed the up pipe port was dry, so I was leading to believe it was coming from the turbo itself.

Fingers crossed.

New turbo purchase put on hold till the smoke subsides and everything is healthy.

Still smoked after starting with the TD04, but hoping its just residual oil in the exhaust from the suspected bad turbo.
