G'day I bought my Legnum 2 years ago & it has some mechanical issues that need attention, has 189000k on the clock & has become smoky funny thing is you can rev it hard doesn't smoke only after it returns to idle or low revs I'm thinking turbo seals any advice would be greatly appreciated

Any chance you've had a look inside your charge pipes? Does it have an oil catch can?
It may need a good hard run, clear up the spark plugs and burn off some carbon?
Any smoking on a cold start, just idling?
Cheers

Smoke on idle and/or decel would most likely be turbos.
specially if they're still factory and you've done that many Ks.

Good chance they're getting a bit tired.

Bro exactly happens to my VR, idle at lights tons of smoke. Smoke clears when driving. Only at idle. And once driven for long time. Now i can hopefully move forward with fixing my car
