Re: replaced head gasket, still blowing white smoke.
Although I'm not familiar with your particular engine , here are some things you can do to verify/diagnose your problem .
First , either do a pressure check or dye check on the cooling system to find where the leak is coming from . Cracked intakes , heads , and blocks all show up differently .
Also, a compression check can verify if there is a single cylinder problem and possibly related to the injection of water .
Is there a possibility that the turbo is drawing water from the intake system??
Is the vent system for the crankcase working properly to keep moisture out and allowing ventilation?
From the pics I've seen of that engine , it did look as the head may be an issue to seal since the gasket area is so thin . Maybe something to look into . Hope this is of some help....
