Thank you again for the info. I knew that you knew what was going on with the smoke, I just put that in for the person that replied about it being oil burning on the exhaust. From the sounds of it the soot/smoke is going to be turbo housing related, especially since it is right below the soot covered air filter housing. I have never had one of these cars, and it is not in a place where I can take my time to decide if I want it or not, so I need to do some gorilla diagnosis before I buy it lol.
