    If the smoke is external, and comes out from the turbo into the engine bay, it could be an oil leak or a water leak, and it could be from either of the lines that feed the turbo oil or water -- or from another source nearby that leaks under pressure onto the hot turbo.

    If the smoke comes out the exhaust pipe it could be a turbo seal problem I suppose.

    It does not have to be the turbo. Is the motor in known good condition? Does the PCV system work correctly?

    the engine is good. And as I see that the system and PCV valve is working properly?
