    Looks like the Linear 2.3t turbo is starting to show signs of oil burning. Pulling down the water pump saw a few tell-tale signs, with oil build up in the pipe to the intercooler, and engine oil level dropping faster than it normally does. Worth doing the seals in the turbo? There is a slight amount of slop in the turbine, with the cobra pipe off when checking. Or take the opportunity to upgrade to a TD04? Any comments?

    I am now not in a hurry to do anything, as after a day or two of driving around it is running really well. No smoke, nothing. Brilliant. Maybe the cloud of dark smoke on start-up was because of all the pulling down of parts and I disturbed something a little.
