well, no oil on the plugs, so i know the smoke isnt making it to the combustion chambers, so that leads me to believe the turbo is blowing oil

the car sat for a few years, while being occasionally started and moved, would just driving it around, allowing the seals to possibly reseat cure the smoke? any input?

How much blue smoke is it blowing, and under what conditions.... startup only, idle, cruise, WOT, closed throttle decel,or all of the above. If the amt. of smoke isnt excessive plugs will look normal..... they burn off deposits by design unless overwhelmed by tons of oil, fuel.

If smoke occurs mostly just after startup and on closed throttle decel, most likely cause is bad valve stem seals / worn valve guides.

the smoke starts when the car warms up, its usually enough just to cause a haze around the car, when RPMs increase, along with oil pressure, the smoke increases, and when under boost, it increases more so

its a pretty good amount of smoke, it would be enough to make people roll their windows up at an intersection
