Hi all,

Fitted a forge recirc DV today (cheers Ben) - I already had a SSQV in place, and upon removing the blanking plug (in place where the OE Dump Valve should be) from the turbo to inlet hose, it was covered underneath in an oily carbon liquid - it didn't smell like oil but I think it is. I then inspected the inside of the hose and it was covered in the same.

I'm thinking this is Turbo, engine or something nasty - is there any way I can tell?

I have been to events in convoy and at sprints and no-one has mentioned any smoke from my car, when on or off boost.

On occassions I get a little smoke from cold when I first start her up.

Cheers

wouldn't worry about it....
you'll always get a bit of oil 'blow-back' through the pipes...
- could try fitting an oil catch tank....would help the breathing and may cut down on residue

if the turbo's on it's way out...pointless thinking about it until it happens....
+ as you're not getting any smoke....just drive it as normal....
