hello people, i just finished my car its running fine but has not been tuned, does any body know of a mechanic that knows what his doing with these cars and will dyno tune for me, melbourne metro area? also slight prob, my car blows a bit of blue smoke if i give it a bit or if i release quickly at anything past 3500revs, could it be the blow by (i havent fitted a oil catch can) or is there any other common fault, i also have had a bit of oil come out the dip stick when under pressure, i did see a bit of oil in the turbo inlet on the first day but the turbo only dun 2500K from brand new???

Have you pulled the crankcase vent from throttle body ???
If left connected ?? You'll pressurise the crankcase...
Disconect and plug throttle body and run this hose to outer air cleaner, latter via a catch can..
The PCV should be o/k but latter it's best to replace with a steel / boost specific PCV...
It won't hurt to take rocker cover off and drill rear crankcase vent alittle larger..
I would retard timing 4 to 6* till it's tuned..

yes i agree retard timing and take it easy. get a aftermarket ecu something that reads boost. just to 100 % make sure the motor is looked after
