    blue smoke 04 wrx

    I have a 04 wrx impreza2.0 turbo no mods when in idle or at start up it smoked blue has a strong smell of what i would say oil and gasoline you can drive it for like 30 min and your clothes will become penetrating with the smell. Power is good it just smokes when at stop light and its a blue cloud of smoke with abit of gray. Any ideas of what this could be i get home with. A headache from the smell sometimes. Plz i would very much appreciated thank u

    How much money do you have and what do you want out of the car? Identify those first...and if either of those are "I don't know" or "I'm on a small budget" then stick with a stock replacement turbo.

    Find a good used stock turbo, or if you can wait longer have the existing turbo rebuilt. Listed in order of increasing cost, decreasing risk. Since you have a stock car, just keep it on the road as is.

    Do not get an intake. Do not buy anything before reading the threads from the link in my signature. Spark plugs are due every 60K miles.

    blue smoke 04 wrx

    Replace stock turbo for stock. Pick any decent aftermarket up pipe. Perform the resistor mod to eliminate the CEL.

    This will get the car on the road and give a bit better spool. It will also make the car illegal for use on any public road anywhere in the United States.

    To go beyond that will require a new map on the ECU. I'd rather keep the money.

    Read the the links in his sig and you will get helpful info, Mr. Sassypants. SD doesn't think like the rest of us when it comes to modifications, so relax.
