:( Yesterday i was in my car and this little Kia Spectra was trying to race me for like 5 miles so finally i down shifted into 3rd about 50mph and punched it, by the time i hit 5th i was at 130mph and let up.I looked in my rear view mirror and blue smoke was everywhere. It is only doing it when the turbo spools up. i have oil all in my intercooler pipes & BOV.....please help me out guys....

pretty much you have to spend about $475 for a rebuilb and with that you might as well get an upgrade for that much.

naw... b/c most likely you're runnin a lot lesser boost without the controller hooked up. Check out the seals, and get a rebuilt. I'm in the midst of doing that right now. Getting a 60trim with a bunch of other toys.
