White smoke?
Blue smoke?
Black smoke?


White smoke = Burning Coolant. Welcome to BHG town.
Blue smoke = Oil Burning. Could be caused by valve seals, worn pistion rings, etc. Internal engine issues.
Black smoke = Rich fuel mixture. Too much gas and not enough air.

How do you know it's not a HG? Even NA's popped head gaskets.

Coolant "on" the plugs, will smoke white for.. oh, a second?

I may not be a supra owner but I've had the same problem on my talon a few times and it was always a blown up radiator hose so double check them too.

I'm not pissed, you just hadn't provided a single bit of 'proof' as to why it absolutely couldn't be a blown head gasket.

Either way, smoking is bad. Compression test the motor, It's an easy test and the results can indicate a lot of things.

ummm...get it running right before even remotely thinking about boosting it. All you'll do is make a potentially correctable problem fail...epic fail...

You can't just bolt on a turbo. Plain and simple, your best bet is to buy a parts car (can be found cheap) and jack the engine, tranny, ecu and wiring harness and swap it all (after you've replaced the head gasket and done the proper machining work of course).

Did you compression test it? How do you know I'm right? Don't jump to conclusions is all I'm saying. Do the proper tests to see what's wrong before you just start replacing parts.
