    Yea, I Seafoamed my car just recently and had that same problem. Couldn't isolate the source of the smoke....at the turbo and/or from underneath/manifold/up area.... So I just installed a new DP that I was planning on anyways with an UP and new copper gaskets... but now I just get strange noises... and to my untrained ear I can't tell if it's normal turbo/wastegate flutter noises or something, or if I have a new leak
