Hi all, sorry to annoy everyone again! My car has had a smoking problem for a while now, and I’ve got it down to a tee on when it happens (seems to be white smoke but could be blue)
Mini jcw r56 n14 <— the first problem lol
It seems to happen when I’m off the throttle and going uphill or downhill, and when I hit the throttle again it comes out in big clouds and clears up.

My head told me that this would be when the car is pulling a strong vacuum? So I thought turbo seals, when I had a look inside the turbo both sides seemed to be quite dry (I expected to see lots of oil)

A quick background is that the car has had a new piston, all new rings, valve stem oil seals etc etc. (3000-5000 miles ago) I’d imagine the rings are bedded in by now?

After a journey out in the car when I stop and get out I can smell burnt oil, so that’s what’s giving me the oil idea. The car has a stage 2 remap with new injectors, upgraded intercooler and a decat. It hasn’t gave this kind of smell when it was remapped but the car did seem to let out a strange black soot that stuck all over the back of the car in small spots for several months now(maybe linked?)

Thank you for your time ?
