how many miles since you reinstalled the turbo? it may take a few minutes to burn off any oil from the rebuild. Otherwise, I'd be thinking your rebuild may not have the oil seal properly seated.

Is it using coolant? If not, ignore the steam (not smoke) and just drive the car.

The main byproduct of combustion is carbon dioxide and steam.

I have no idea what you're trying to say between all the missing punctuation sand misspelled words.

Smoking like this?


This was the turbo, lost the thrust bearing.

You should pick up a block tester kit. They are cheap and it will answer your question (although I think we all know what it is).

You can buy an HC test kit to see if you are getting exhaust gasses into the coolant for about $40. If it tests positive, it can either be the head/head gasket or the turbocharger. You could but a different turbocharger in the car to see if that fixes it before pulling off the head.
