Hello Paraguay!

Great to see such a lovely example. I'm guessing parts are a problem so full respect for keeping the flag flying :cool:

Any engine mods done or planned?

That is not a bad thing at all - always best to start with a stock one. Far less surprises! :cool:
Of course! so i have a question if you can answer for me. sometimes my engine smoking, what means that? can be a turbo? or something bad?

Ideally a cylinder compression test followed by a cylinder leakdown test would give an indication of headgasket/valve stem oil seals/etc. You could follow it up with pressure testing the cooling system as well.

I know diagnosing remoting is usually a disaster but it sounds like the smoke associated with a cracked turbo exhaust housing. Coolant weeps into the exhaust and is burnt off usually whilst sitting at traffic lights or left idling for a short time. Might be time for a turbo upgrade..
