We rebuilt my 7mGTE. We tried starting it up a few days ago. We got it to start, but there is tons of white smoke coming out the back. It smells sweet like coolant. We are pretty sure it is burning anti-freeze. We checked the spark plugs and they are clean. All the cylinders have around 185 compression.
We think the turbo is blown. We are going to take apart the turbo this weekend and take a look at it. Has anyone else had this problem?
It is smoking exactly like it was before we blew the headgasket. We have a Commetic Head Gasket and it was torqued to 104 ft lbs (I think. Lubed with oil). The head was prepped and resurfaced. The block was cleaned.
