think you need bigger injectors captain! 98.7%!!!!!
700cc Sards have just arrived, and they're going in tomorrow - none too soon I might add!

so if I'm not mistaken, this white smoke is coming from this sequence of events?

1) engine running very hard, oil builds in the head or someplace it ought not to be
2) breather tubes on top can't handle it, so the oil ends up in the turbo and out the exhaust

How bad is this for the turbos? Is this the whole raison d'etre for oil catch cans?
Can someone confirm that the loud pop is a shot of flame out the tailpipe, and not something more dire or worrisome? Obviously, this is something I can't visually confirm on my own :p

I just reread the thread and the above I wrote makes no sense whatsoever :(

Gonna go check my recirc dump valves, see if there's any stray oil thereabouts.

just went and beat the crap out of my car, couldn't replicate the problem, which is good, and perhaps bad, but mostly good :)
