Default Smoking at Idle

Hey guys, i just installed my turbo on my car agian, now with the new oil outlet. It dosent smoke anymore when driving, but when i leave the car at idle for about a minute or two it starts burning oil agian. Has anyone had this problem before? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Check your intake pipes for oil, especially if you are plumbing the crank case vent pre-turbo. Check your PCV valve.

too much oil into the chra will burnup. What size line, what type of turbo? Are you sure the drain is good?

Im using a T-25 off a DSM i just got it rebuilt so i know the seals are good, as far as Lines im using a -4an inlet w/o restrictor, and for the outlet a -10an with 3/8 adapter to the oil pan. My restrictor for my inlet is coming tomorrow im gonna try using that and see if it fixes the problem
