  1. ACT workshops, tuners, paint n panel, rego, etc

    Anywhere know a workshop good with modified cars for a rwc?
  2. Car is a 92 Silvia running forged blacktop with 3071r turbo. Last weekend was driving along when I got a big cloud of smoke from the exhaust out of nowhere. Stopped and the smoke cleared, drove on and there was no smoke, about 20minutes later became smokey again for a minute then was fine. Was on way to Wakefield for a drift day when this happened. Went anyway and drifted for the morning with smoke coming from the car on and off all day. Drove it home then very easy as split a pipe and there was no smoke at all for the hour journey. So what could this be, turbo seal or something else? I pulled off the intake pipe to turbo and there is a small puddle of oil inside the pipe just befor the turbo wheel. There is a slight bit of play in the turbo wheel itself but spins freely. Changed the oil also and seemed to be some shimmers in the oil like metal particuls. I'm not very experienced with turbos at all. Want to try get the car sorted for next weekend or am I in trouble?? Thanks
  3. No not milky, no overheating or anything. Car running 100% normal bar the smoke on and off
  4. Scratch that, mate reckons smoke was white
  5. Nah don't think so, it was more just driving along them big cloud of smile for a few seconds, them clears. Mate was watching at track said some laps there would be smoke constantly from the car then next lap there would be no smoke at all. Also any time I spin out I would get big cloud of smoke from car also
