Hey guys, new here. Kind of bummed out right now because I'm 90% sure my stealth 64 just failed on me. Again. Back in November my stock turbo started blowing oil out the exhaust with about 128K on it and at first I wasn't sure if it was turbo or failing injectors. So I decided to do both; as well as a CP3 swap and ARP head studs while it was apart. I have Industrial 20% over injectors, fleece CP3 and the aforementioned DT stealth 64 along with tuning from Starlite. Prior to this I was running a Minimaxx and i have an Airdog 4g 165.

So this is where things fall apart. About 200 or so miles into having the truck back together i started noticing a little blue smoke hazing after I would leave a stop sign, etc. This got worse and worse over the next couple hundred miles to the point where i knew something was definitely wrong. Pulled the downpipe and sure enough, it was coated with oil. Pulled the turbo off, sent it to DT. They told me nothing was wrong with the turbo, and that my oil drain must be clogged. It wasn't. Anyway 200 bucks for a rebuild and 2 weeks later I get the turbo back from DT. Install it a couple days later. Everything seemed fine until today. Same story. Starting to see blue smoke again and I'll be shocked if there isn't oil in the downpipe when I pull it off tomorrow.

Obviously this is incredibly frustrating. I am at a loss here. Thankfully I have a backup vehicle while the truck is down. I am very disappointed in how all of this has gone so far. What do I do?

P.S. Thanks for reading all of this and thanks for any leads.

Make sure your PCV isn't plugged/kinked or in my case frozen as it cost me a factory turbo. Oil coming out the tailpipe, plumes of blue smoke.
