Common causes of bad smoking?
#13
Managed to get the elbow out. The old gasket was proper dry and hard to get off. Managed it in the end. I used two new gaskets (have a pack of 10) and sandwhiched them together using instant gasket to make one thick one. I sealed up the egr and put a home made gasket between the metal blanker and the inlet elbow which will hopefully seal things nicely. Its all back together now but im going to give it a while to dry nicely. It looks like its made a good seal Smile I can only hope haha.

I looked at the other end of the boost pipe where it joins to the turbo but that looked dry as a bone. I gently tightened the hose clamps about 1 turn and left them like that.

The pipe going into the intake on the turbo does seem to have some oily mist resedue on it but I cant work out why that would be considering that its the intake side of the turbo :S
