Thanks for that. It's after 10pm here now and dark so I will check these things out tomorrow. I took a quick look a few minutes ago with a torch, the intercooler looks quiet fouled with oil on the bottom. Could that be a factor? Maybe it's worth cleaning it up?
Also there is the fact that the white smoke grows worse as the engine gets warmer. Do you think this is consistent with an air leak somewhere?
Thanks again, I'll take a detailed look tomorrow morning.
Two pictures, front and back of the intercooler which I removed this morning. What do you think? Worth trying to clean it up or should I replace it?
Ok an update. Aside from the intercooler being covered in gunk, I poured water into it and found a substantial leak. See the photo attached. Am I on the right track do you think?
Thanks. Might take me a while to source a new intercooler so I'll go do that. Thanks for your help.
