Lol. Bit of an understatement.

Is that a result of detonation? Looks like something you'd see over on the Coral.net lol.

"We set the wastegate to 15psi and this happened"

headgasket normally white. my mates car has done it and its like a steam engine!

black would be unburnt fuel, blueish is the car burning oil.

Seriously blown that gasket.
If the black smoke is followed by the blue smoke ,could be a case of overfuelling causing bore wash.used to happen to 202 holdens when you put a 350 on them with the wrong jetting .If the black smoke is constant go looking for a reason to overfuel like temp sender or map sensor pipe with split.
