Vl Berlina turbo wagon
Hey all got a berlina turbo, a6, stock everything.... I'm fairly sure I've done a set of rings but thought I'd ask for other opinions? The car sits around alot, and hasn't been flogged and all of a sudden the other day I fired it up and as it warmed up the smoke got worse and worse, and if I give it a rev it bellows out, only thing I have done is put a catch can on it, which I doubt would have any effect, any input appreciated cheers!

Put it back to standard (catch can removal), and take it for a run. At least you'll know if the modification has influenced the smoke issue.

Sounds more like your turbo has blown a seal.
