|Texas2Ga||I have a feeling that may be the problem. At least hoping so.... he did seem like the "make it work" type of guy. Finding a shop this weekend and will update the finding.|

|Texas2Ga||He stated he did injectors and cups. Showed my son photos of him doing the work, but who knows. We have been texting him trying to find out what he used for replacements but have received no answer. I am just hoping it is injector related and not piston and ring related.... or I guess which ever one is lightest on the wallet at this point.|

|Absolute||Wonder if previous owner put new cups in when he did injectors . Could have some cracked ones. Might have to pull the injectors and look. How do they fair on a contribution test, and buzz test?|

|Absolute||Oops , missed the chip, yes that is normal to smoke on a hot tune. Sorry about that.|

Thank you Absolute. I can't find a leak so will be looking for a good shop this week. Just so I know, the only time it smokes is if the chip is set on the highest HP. Is that not normal either?
Again, thanks for all of your help.

|Absolute||If there is no oil outside, then your burning it. I would check the injector o rings, maybe run a compression test. A small clue is the black smoke when you hammer it. A stock truck doesn't smoke or do that, so its probably oil burning and cleaning up with boost. Your boost numbers seem fine so guessing your burning it.|

I cleaned the engine the other day and it shows no leaks. Valley is clean. Checked the Fuel filter and its clean. Truck is not smoking..... I drove another 200 miles..... about another 2 quarts low... Fuel mileage has decreased as well. First 2 trips was about 18mpg. Now about 13.5. Not sure why. Only thing I have done is Clean the EBPS and Tube. Both were totally clogged.
Truck still running great. Drove home about 75mph. Boost runs at about 4-6 and EGT never exceeded 600. Assume those are ok. I would be happy with it if the oil consumption was normal.

Check the fuel filter if it is black, you could have an injector O-ring issue.

|Texas2Ga||As I started to clean the engine, i found the clamp that holds the turbo to the spyder is loose and can basically move the hole thing around. Is that a problem?|

Unfortunately its still drinking oil. Went even lower on stick and barely reading after another 100 miles. Going to clean up the engine real well and see if any leaking around turbo, but don't think so. Any other ideas to check?
I'm new to Georgia, any suggestions on a good Shop?
