If the seals in the turbo are bad on either side it would cause smoking. A sure way to tell is to inspect the turbo for sings of leakage into either the compressor (intake) or turbine (exhaust) sides of the turbo. EXCESSIVE shaft play can is also a tell-tale sign.
Yes, adding a turbo to a N/A engine can, it the cooling system can't handle the extra heat the extra power will generate. It alos can on a factory turbo car, if the boost is turned up too high, causing excessive exhaust backpressure/egt.
No. The turbo needs to be rebuilt. Basically, the bearings and seals in the turbo have worn out, allowing the engine oil that typically flows through to leak into the burning hot exhaust. This often causes excessive oil usage with accompanied smoke from the exhaust.
Turbo chargers are driven by the exhaust gases exiting the engine - engine exhaust drives a turbine in the exhaust system which, in turn, turn the turbo compressor.
no, the exhaust bolts on at a different place for turbo and non turbo engines you can probably use most of the exhaust but will have to get different engine pipes to hook up between engine and rest of exhaust
the turbo is on the end of the exhaust manifold before the exhaust pipe starts .
Lots of things-bad oil pressure, restriction in the oil drain tube on the turbo, excessive crankcase pressure, and a worn turbo can cause turbo email@example.com
Look on the exhaust system for the turbo unit.
Attached to the exhaust manifold... Follow that and you will find the turbo.
It would be a waste of time and money. You would have to make a special adapter to hook the exhaust to the manifold. On a turbo header, the exhaust hooks to the turbo and the turbo to the manifold.
If boost pressure is too high or intercooling fails or if the turbocharger seizes causing excessive exhaust backpressure, then yes, very easily.
yes that's why you should get a turbo
