I thought coolant made white smoke (steam) and burning oil made blue smoke... is your smoke under boost blue? It takes quite a bit of burning oil to actually see smoke, I think.

Odd. I normally just throw them 100's at a time at it, and it blows them out the tail pipe....

I only get light black smoke under boost. Unburn't fuel from running rich 11.5-12 aft I figure.

Got some white/ maybe blue smoke on start up when it was cold. I have changed turbos since then and now in 60 degree mornings no smoke at all.
