True. Although the coincidence could be the fact that it was on the dyno....?

My dipstick is a rather tight fit so it would take a heck of a lot to blow it out!

There's no oil in the intake or intercooler piping so don't think it's the compressor side. I haven't got time this week to take the downpipe and exhaust off. Will try to next week.

Hope it lasts for a weekend trip to Meremere :)

Every turbo I've ever owned has leaked out the compressor just a smidge more than slightly ;) although on the 300zx only the right hand unit ever seems to blow snot. Same with every other VG30 I've come across too. Hmm reminds me of the young asian gentleman who tried to sell me his low KM manual z32, went for a good ole boost, got it back to his place, popped the bonnet again for a brief inspection, closed it to see the james bond style cloud bulding behind the car as the oil pump emptied the sump into the turbine. He blamed it on "the mechanic put in a too much oil" haha good one. Only from the right hand exhaust... My franken-ct26 blows a bit of oil from the compressor but I don't get visible smoke at all and the actual amount of oil escaping never seems to increase. Gonna be spectacular when it does let go.

A badly broken valve stem seal will vent out of the PCV quite visibly.  I used this technique years ago on an RB25 whose owner had bought my old T04E and wasn’t convinced of where the smoke was coming from.  Yes, you’ll get some blowby gas, but unless your engine is poked a dead stem seal will be fairly obvious.

 

It also removes turbine end o-ring failure from the equation.  If it’s turbine end then it won’t vent out the PCV ;-).  If it’s compressor end you’ll see oil residue in the intake.

That's what I would've though.

Wouldnt smoke from the pcv just  indicate bad ring blowby?   Just mulling ideas for my own benefit also haha

One way you can diagnose if it’s valve stems seals is to pipe your PCV out the side of the bonnet using a long hose and go for a drive.  You’ll get smoke coming from it if so.

Well the only thing I've done is change the valve springs and put it on the dyno. Perhaps I damaged one of the valve stem seals when I was changing the springs, or perhaps the turbine seal let go on the dyno, or maybe both haha.

I thought it was rings initially - but then I thought it was odd that there was no smoke at all when it's cold....

Failing turbo seal on the hotside maybe?   I have a similar issue with my 7m, but I suspect a failing valve guide seal, as it smokes under heavy decel and initial boost, but never cold start-up

Hi all

 

What's a common cause of, blue smoke at idle, only when hot. Doesn't do it on initial cold start, or at all until the engine is up to temp.

 

Puff of blue smoke as I come onto full boost and then it seems to disappear, although it could still be there any i just cant see it once I'm moving at speed...

 

Spark plugs look normal and don't appear to have any oil contamination.
