    Blue Exhaust Smoke

    My exhaust smoke is turning blue above 3,000 rpm. All the fluids are fresh and ski runs fine. At idle exhaust is white/steam. I putin new plugs a few weeks ago. I pulled them out today to inspect. Im trying to figure this out before I take it in to the stealership. Could I be having these symptoms from a leaky S/C Oil Seal? Being that CYL #1 and the S/C are next to each other...?

    Plugs:
    CYL #1: Tip is black/smells like oil
    CYL #2: Semi-Clean
    CYL #3: Looks New

    Pull rubber hose between supercharger and throttle body and look for oil.

    Yes, small puddle of oil in the inlet of the S/C and the hose and a little oil in it as well.

    A catch can is a pass through can/system that traps oil blowby coming back from the engine that is otherwise vented back into the air intake from the factory, essentially leaving an oil residue on everything including the air intake, supercharger, piping, intercooler and throttle body.

    If you have a stock air intake your crank case vents into it. If over filled w/ oil it can puke into the air intake. If running aftermarket air intake you install a catch can to keep crankcase blow by out of the intake... you will have some blow by, it's the nature of boosted engines. If your charger hasn't been rebuilt at the recommended interval, the oil may be coming from the supercharger seal.... sorry, to slow, see above
