    If it consistently smokes after no pre-shutdown idling, and consistently does NOT smoke after pre-shutdown idling, then I, too, would look at the CHRA for the culprit.

    I would not say its perfectly consistent. I will try to check the turbo this weekend.

    When i pull the dp, would i just check for wetness and check the fins on the turbo to see if they are loose?

    you aren't really going to be able to check it, very well. especially with it still mounted.

    look for white, chalky-looking residue on the exhaust side turbo outlet when you pull the dp.

    Start closely monitoring your coolant level in the overflow bottle. mark where it is, and check it again in a few days, noting any changes.

    Well i took it to the dealer today. Oil pan was removed by previous owner and is getting resealed. i also have a leak in my pcv hose/tubing and lastly i possibly got screwed over by a local company. I will give a name after i get results of further testing of the work they did and if it is truly leaking again; they replaced the plastic separator plate with a metal one.

    took 2 videos today of the problem. Doesnt smell like burning oil or coolant. dealership said pcv hose and t-piece need replaced, will do this weekend, but i dont think a leaking pcv t-piece could cause this...

    a poor pcv system WILL cause it to smoke. I know for a fact, that it will.

    ahh LOL

    yeah, if the pcv/evac system isn't working properly, it can/will over-pressurize the crankcase, and push oil past internal seals/rings.

    check the pcv valve, too, to make sure it's not clogged or anything.

    bummer dude.

    Check if it's the hoses.

    If it's not the hoses... The turbo really sounds like the culprit.
