I had a 1.8T Passat in the shop yesterday that blew white smoke under boost.
I drained close 1 liter of oil from the intercooler. Further inspection found that the
turbo shaft had too much play, allowing oil to leak into the intake.
The oil was collecting in the intercooler and forced into the engine under heavier
loads / acceleration.
A new turbo solved the smoking issue,
I am in the process of making a youtube video on turbo replacement. Will post
the link here once I have finished it.
Have you since solved / found your smoking issue?
