Re: Smoke coming from under my intake
Check the oil feed line running into the turbo and possibly the coolant feed line as well. I had a leak there when I swapped a turbo (had to add some teflon tape to the oil fitting where it fed the turbo and it was all good). Pretty scary thought that I could have possibly burned the car down if the oil leak was bad enough. I would pull the airbox out to give you some room and grab a good light start the car and use your eyes to help you locate the source. Use your smell too (does it smell sweet - antifreeze or does it smell like burnt oil (oil). After 200 miles any residue should have burned up so you're probably leaking somewhere.
