Smoke after turbo hose change
So I have just replaced the turbo hoses on my JTD with some from autolusso (thanks guys), old ones were in terrible shape with big tear in lower and small hole in upper, both were silicone ones which is odd though as I thought these where more sturdy and didn't go?
But now I have allot of black smoke on high revs? Is this just burning off the crap from when i was driving around at 1k revs for the last week on the split hoses or something more sinister? Only gave it a couple of standing revs to check and the smog cloud was epic, I am hopping its not so bad while driving later!
Any thoughts or just normal residue burning off? Italian tune up time?
