Exclamation Rebuilt motor putting out smoke, help

It took me all summer but I rebuilt my 86 Daytona CS Z, Its got an 88 turbo z head from sliders to hydraulics, a non-turbo cam shaft and lifters form JEGS. The block has been bored out and the crank and pistons rebalanced. Also new water pump as well I also got a new garret turbo on order and a new manifold as well.
So...... I got her started up (beside the old turbo clogged with dirt and the old manifold leaking out air it runs like crap. I turn it over a couple times and give it some gas to keep it at idle,once at idle it runs with out my help, then aside that it runs real choppy and puts out smoke at the pipe. Now is there anything I forgot to do??? Please let me know, thank you

Re: Rebuilt motor putting out smoke, help

Many engine builders don't like rebuilding turbo engines, often because people have a blown turbo, not a blown engine. Then they rebuild and still see smoke. Just from what you've said I would be your turbo is smoking, not your engine..

Re: Rebuilt motor putting out smoke, help

Your pushing a lot more oil pressure and volume, as it isn't bleeding through the mains now and the turbo sat which is hard on there seals.
