Hi all. S3 with TSR big turbo build running 513bhp. Noticed a oil smell when at lights or stationary. No warning lights on dashboard etc. can anyone suggest issues that this could be?
Cheers.

did you check to see if your oil level is lowered?

Most likely its exhaust if you are no longer running cats.

Yeah I don't think exhaust and oil smell the same. My first thought is your turbo is blowing oil by and burning it. If you never need to add oil then Chad is probably right but I can tell the difference between exhaust and burnt oil and I doubt it would trigger any lights except low oil when you were low.
Oh and 513bhp very impressive (y)
