well I pulled my waterpump today, what fun that was, 3 hours just to get it off with a lunch break Any ways I checked the charge pipes and there wasnt much oil in them. My car smokes at warm idle. I checked the plugs and they are dry so i dont think its valve stem seals, the turbos spool fast and there is no shaft play on #1 didnt check #2 for obious reasons. ???? IM lost as to why i smoke.

weird, its blue smoke correct?

Maybe try swapping another set of twins and see if that might be the issue.
Do you have a catch can hooked up?

agreed.. turbo seals. Just because you can t see any oil and there is no shaft play doesnt mean they havent gone...

When turbos seals go you wont see any oil in the pipes, as the oil just gets dumped down into the exhaust.. hence the smoke !!
