I hope you are right, but consider the following:
1. blown turbos will not cause a CEL. Its purely mechanical
deterioration. Only if the oil fouls the combustion process will a CEL
2. Once warm, the Catalytic converter can clean up the opil smoke, until
the oil fouls and ruins the cat, whcih is very expensive BTW
what's the history on this car?
Do you always keep the revs and boost down until fully warmed up?
