How's it going fellas..I put together my s13 sr20. I did. 9:1 compresion new rings new bearings new metal HG 264 cams and valve springs and retainers...I got a t3/t4 turbo had it for about 1yr ..Ifinished the motor and runs great been driving it to work and back(100miles a day) for about a week and some change..lol..I startedto notice when I'm at a stop and take off it throws a bit of blue smoke and goes away
Now the head was chillin in my garage for a long time b4 puting it on

Would it b my tubo causing this? Or would it b my valve stem seals?

Thanks for evrybodys help :)

since its blue smoke, its oil that is being burnt so sice you mention about your turbo check the turbo seals. im 97% sure its that :ghey:

Did you break in the engine since you did a full rebuild? Take it easy for the first how ever many months and babying it to make sure the rings seal properly.

The blue smoke is oil blow by, so yea check the seals in the turbo, idk how ur set up is but I helped my buddy with his car when he had the problem and we took the vacuum line off and that told us that it was the valve seals so check that otherwise it prolly the turbo
