My 2001 vw golf gti is smoking on deceleration. It
has a 1.8t motor with a ko4 turbo pushing 24psi of
boost now that I fixed the boost leak. It is stage 2
tuned with a cat less down pipe it is tuned to 93
octane gas. It started when my catch can over
flowed and ever since it has smoked on
deceleration anyone kno why?
