new videos to follow shortly. Im voting blown turbo. I advised to idle the car open manifold, eliminating the turbo, and see if smoke comes directly out of the engine...

Do you like Phil Collins? I've been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that I really didn't understand any of their work. It was too artsy, too intellectual. It was on Duke where Phil Collins' presence became more apparent. I think "Invisible Touch" is the group's undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on intangibility, at the same time it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums. Christie, take off the robe. Listen to the brilliant ensemble playing of Banks, Collins and Rutherford. You can practically hear every nuance of every instrument. Sabrina, remove your dress. In terms of lyrical craftsmanship and sheer songwriting, this album hits a new peak of professionalism. Sabrina, why don't you dance a little? Take the lyrics to "Land of Confusion." In this song, Phil Collins addresses the problem of abusive political authority. "In Too Deep" is the most moving pop song of the 1980s about monogamy and commitment. The song is extremely uplifting. Their lyrics are as positive and affirmative as anything I've heard in rock. Christie, get down on your knees, so Sabrina can see your *******. Phill Collins solo efforts seem to be more commercial and therefore more satisfying in a narrower way, especially songs like "In the Air Tonight" and "Against All Odds." Sabrina, don't just stare at it. Eat it. But I also think that Phill Collins works better within the confines of the group than as a solo artist-and I stress the word artist. This is "Sussudio," a great, great song, a personal favorite.

Broken rings due to fuel/spark management problem. Put a compression tester on it and see.

This reminds me of the thread I had when my car did the same thing..
I'm guessing shot rings.
Check the compression/leakdown test

I like how you failed to mention that you blew the head gasket when you first swapped the head on.

I vote for fucked rings

The head gasket wasn't blown when we swapped the head.

Ok...?
A compression or leakdown test would give you the answer but this works too I guess. Suppose the next owner will just have to find out on their own.

The day before the car started to smoke, a compression test was performed. The cylinders read 190 across the board. The car was driven normally(no smoke was present) then parked overnight. Upon start up the next day the car smoked severely at idle. Another compression test will be done this weekend, but if it is in fact the piston rings how could this have occurred. The tune on the car was conservative and there was no detonation present while driving.

How is your crankcase breather connected, and to what is it connected?

And what does your pre-turbo (MAF, air filter) setup look like?

I feel like I'm in an unfamiliar dark room trying to find the door.
