    Black smoke and oil in intake pipes

    Lots of black smoke on hard acceleration and fair bit of oil in the turbo to manifold pipe.

    New turbo fitted and new silicon hoses still not cured it
    I can’t see any blockages in the pipes as Iv blown airline down them all ?

    The inter cooler hose to the intake is blowing oil out and the oil goes from max to halfway on dipstick within 5 miles darnt drive it incase of runaway

    Any ideas anyone

    If it's throwing it's oil out the boost pipes, then the turbo is fubar. Don't drive it, as it could runaway very easily.

    Black smoke under acceleration could be a sticking EGR valve, or failed throttle plate drive.

    Found the fault 2 holes one in each cam cover after a rebuild when the oil pump broke didn’t think to check the covers.
