Hi there,
You need to inspect the the turbo outlet duct, if there is an appreciable amount of oil in the duct or intercooler, the turbo is the culprit, could also be too much oil supply to the turbo, needs a restrictor in the supply line.
If the oil is minimal or none, then the engine has an issue.
Custom turbo installs are known for this problem, especially if the engine wasn't originally turbocharged.
Hope this helps.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
