yes its happening to me
just a little and just on the over-run but puff of the dreaded blue stuff out the back
Now this can be two things
piston rings ...oh f***
or oil seals on the turbo oh d***
I had the trunking to the inlet manifold off and there is a definite residue
so the balance of probabilities = turbo oil seals
anybody out there been through this ?
Is it new turbo time or what about these service kits that some people are selling ...

help

It need not be any of your choices,I would suspect valve stem seals first,they become very hard and brittle with age,my 9000s will smoke after a legthy run on overun but never at any other time and oil consumption is negligable.
