Thats all vaguely burned oil at idle, now picture a thick smoke screen reminicent of a forest fire and you have 3000rpm. The new turbos did the exact thing I bought them to fix.

The question is now, what’s causing exhaust seals to leak? These are cheapo turbos but they have worked on other vehicles before. I did notice during the rebuild of the older ebay turbos that the design of a particular part was different and although they still smoked, the exhaust housing was looks much less oily:

I’ve contacted the seller to see about getting a partial refund on these new turbos to purchase a couple more rebuild kits. Theres not much else to be done on this front besides moving to a larger drain diameter, currently its 10an.
