I had a rear turbo blow and came the exhaust. I have wet oil at my exhaust tips. I replaced turbos and I have the clouds of white smoke from the oil in exhaust. Should I pull the entire exhaust off and clean it out, or what is a better way to get rid of it all?

send it once a day and check back in a few weeks. multi-gear pulls are the best since it spits fire between shifts or at least my car does

If you dont have any cats in your exhaust then just do a few hard pulls, should burn it off and not hurt anything, but oil can clog up cats and cause problems

Didn’t you have some of those new GC 2.0’s installed earlier this year? Or was it some older GC version; or another setup altogether?

I have hi flow cats in the downpipes and I do have stock exhaust from behind that other than the mufflers. When I took the exhaust off and tiled it up, about half a quart of sludge (tan colored oil/water) came slowly running out. So after flushing it with some degreaser and water until no more sludge was coming out (about 40 minutes with pressure washer) I put it back on. Started it up a couple times and still rolling smoke. I am just gonna have to take it for a drive. I didn't want to get them to hot though but maybe they got cleaned enough that not much is left on it.

Well check your logs and make sure your fuel trims are okay and beat on it a little and get the exhaust real hot, its gonna smoke until its all cleared out, but if it doesnt stop or your trims look weird that can be a sign of excessive exhast back pressure aka clogged cat

Yeah I will do that tomorrow. I just took it out for a drive. I got rid of a lot of the smoke. It isn't smoking much anymore (thank jesus). Hopefully after a few more drives it will be all cleared up.

Ill check my trims tomorrow while I drive to work.
