Is the exhaust new? Sometimes if it's new you have a burn in period where you will notice some white wispy smoke. I'll let the FI guys take care of the TT thing, maybe it's running rich/lean? :dunno: I am not the FI expert.

ps please don't post in all caps, it makes it seem like you are screaming or yelling....:biggrin:

How many miles on her? What mods, if any?

btw...welcome to the forum and great choice on the Z32 TT. I owned a '91 Z32 TT for 13 years...if it's a light , wispy smoke just at start up, and the engine idle is smooth, I don't think you have a problem. If you're getting smoke at WOT, that could be a different story.

Are the turbos oil cooled?... sometimes a worn oil-cooled turbo will drip a few drops into the hot exh. manifold...happened to me...a new used turbo solved my problem.
