BMW 330d from 2001 bad fast accelerating after Turbo replacement ?

Asked by Oct 14, 2019 at 04:22 PM about the 2001 BMW 3 Series

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

(Sorry about my English...)
my buddy 's BMW 330d broke his turbo (axel was splitted in half) i replaced
the turbo with a original repair one. i replacede the 'crankhouse filter?' and
changed the oil+filter, my buddy don't wanted me to check inside the oilpan..

it started fine and i checked the oilreturn line from turbo and i think that was
OK. the car was turned on without driving 30 minuttes. then i take it for a test
drive with NO hard driving. it seems OK and i can feel the boost and no weird
noices so i think all was fine.. then my buddy got the car and i told him not to
drive crazy before the turbo is completely oiled*.

- after couple days he try to take the throttle all the way down but its like the
car can't  move fast forward (like the cars is 'shaking')when he want it to
accelerating fast and their is comming a littlebit white smoke out the exhaust
when he was trying that.
what can it be ?
