I just got my turbo back from being completely rebuilt with new everything, well I sent it off in the first place because the car was smoking and i thought it was the turbo seals were gone bad. Well the guy said that the exhaust side was really corroded. Well I put everything together not leaks anywhere but just sitting there the car will smoke out of the exhaust and driving it goes away but as soon as I stop it starts smoking again. Any ideas? Similar problems?

I only have 62 miles on the new turbo.

I studied when it smoked and I see that it will only smoke when I let the car sit for a minute, if I rev the motor up the smoking goes away then it will slowly comeback again. I am thinking that maybe its the oil Im using? 10w 30, Maybe I should go thicker? 20w 50?

its oil I know but maybe instead of white it would be classified as "blue" but I have been driving harder and it seems as if now it only smokes every once in a while
