Just got back from work, so i havent yet had a chance to look at it yet.. But anyways, it never ran more than a quart low on oil, it was fine all last weekend when i was driving around, but once i got on the highway i smelled oil burning so i pulled over frequently to fill up the oil
The stumble isnt really what im most worried about right now, its the oil.
On the drive home today i didnt smell or see any oil burning, but last night when i went to get gas i started it, let it idle for a few minutes, and saw what appeared to be smoke (possible condensation its been raining a lot here) pouring out of the tailpipe
Well i just went out and looked, and i know i tightened the oil drain, but for some reason the front side of the motor is covered in oil, i have no idea where it could be coming from.. but still like i said before, its burning out of the tailpipe on the highway
Basically the only things i could think it could be is either the turbo needs a restrictor on the oil feed ( i thought it had a built in one) Or its something to do with the engine (HG, rings, valves) something like that
Ill do a compression test this weekend or sometime this week if i have time tho

So greenday....whats up with it now? did you forget to tighten the oil drain or something? It it smoking the same way or could this possilby be because you ran without oil? stumble could be a number of things....retrace everything you did and make sure you didn't forget to tighten a hose or something.
