20vt blue cloud of smoke on startup

Subject line says it all, since yesterday I have a
huge blue cloud behind the car on start-up, but
nothing more afterwards, even when pulling hard. I
know the intake plumbing is not perfectly tight and
leak-less but at least it's not enough for the ECU to
run in limp home mode. Could this be the cause? Could
it be the turbo? I'll check tonight when I get home
for any shaft play, before installing the engine this
summer it had virtually no play!

Thanks for any valuable input,
