Sounds more like head gasket or valve issues. Are you sure it's turbo?


100% positive its been proven by a replacement turbo by mazda but they just dont wanna warranty it.


I started to notice the white smoke at about 14k miles. My dealership replaced the factory K04 turbo completely under warranty (there's a recall on these turbos i believe). So far i have not seen any white smoke with the new turbo.
