help white smoke when i slow down
i have a problem i have white smoke when im slowing down to a stop and i dont know what it is. i have a sr20de with a t25. the t25 was just rebuilt and the de was never smoking befor i put on the t25. could it be the way i made the return from the turbo to the oil pan?

3 things
1. ur seal on ur turbo is gone and causes the oil to leak and make white smoke. even though u say its freshly rebuilt there could be somethin wrong with it i should know i have the same problem.
2. it could be a headgasket. but the only way u would know is if u did a compression test.
3. check for any leaks like u said it could be the way u made ur return line but if its coming out your exhaust i doubt it.

wouldn't this mean either valve stem seals or leaky oil seal rings?

Sounds stupid, but make sure you didn't block off your crankcase breather... lol
