Prior to WOT - part throttle accel, around 1.4-1.6 bar. If I punch up to WOT
it goes away. Full bore accel, I may get some dependent on load - thing is
when I do, I also get a ton of blue smoke (only time). I'm figgerin' turbo
oil seals or valve seals, maybe both. For the part throttle detonation I
need to tear into the intercooler first to verify the seals in it - may have
popped an internal when running "somewhere" in excess of 1.95 bar
inadvertantly (bad lower WG hose, bypassed cutoff).
Diagnostics all ok. Running the slightly richer Ned recommended duty cycle.
