Smokey R33 - final update

Probably my considerable lack of engine knowledge, but I hope this isn't fatal:

After a quick blast, on the overun, quite a lot of white smoke blows from the exhaust. It dissapears quickly as the revs drop. I don't have a CAT fitted so I understand more gasses will exit. There is no loss of power, and the car seems fine afterwards (no noise/knocking etc).

Some history: The car probably hasn't seen much over 5000rpm for the last 6 months due to a slipping clutch (I only bought her 4 weeks ago). Now I have the new clutch fitted, more revs, smokey. Is she getting cleaner - hence the smoke? Hmmm.....

I've bought a lemon, haven't I?:mad:

Any help/advice greatly appreciated.

sounds like turbo oil seals to me.

sorry...:(

get it checked out sooner rather than later.

Are you running std boost ? it could be that the turbos haven't been able to work too hard so the fault may not have been so obvious.

I hope I am wrong...

running

about 1.2 bar (Abbey chip). Standard turbos with steel internals.

Definately not condensation.

I'll have her checked pronto.

Cheers guys.

The news on the street is that it's either valve stem seals or turbo seals (thanks SteveC). More likely the turbos.

The car had recon turbos last year, so it looks like they were sh*te (or she's been thrashed to death of course).

Oh the joys of Skyline ownership.

Right then. Anyone have nice R33 GTR turbos for sale (seriously)?;)

Cheers

Cured!!

Smokey motor has been running clear for weeks now.

Hiteq checked her out and couldn't find anything wrong. Probably cleaning out some crap due to the low revs she was subjected to.

It seems these cars need to be driven, and not just down to the shops.

Phew!
