In need of Tune or burning oil?

I noticed black soot spots on my bumper and I can't tell whether the smell that it makes when I get on it is oil or running rich.


I made an appointment in 2 weeks at slowmotion motorsportd, and he said it could possibly be my turbo going out......

Any truth to this?

Sure could be with those symptoms. Try an stay outta boost or don't drive it till then as it could be engine related as well.

Bumper soot usually means your running rich.
