    Sounds like coolant. Hows the level on your reservoir?

    That would explain the white. The blue is probably oil.

    Sounds bad, sorry.

    If it just smokes at start up most likely valve stem seals. If it smokes at idle and while running I would say piston rings.

    Run a compression test and it will give you a good idea whats wrong.

    I understand you're frustrated but please don't dodge the swear filter

    How are you running it without the turbo?

    16 psi is no problem on an EJ205 with a decent tune.

    What are the specifics on the car (year, model, mods etc.)?

    Yea not sure what he was trying to say. The only point I received was that the piston failed and he is building a new motor..lol

    Really PSI has nothing to do with an engine failing.....up to a point. Its all in the tune and how accurate your timing and afr's are. If you were making modifications and not changing the tune that is most likely what caused the motor to fail.

    Snap a pic of the piston I would like to see the top. Any signs of deto or scoring from the heat?
