q60 CHOO CHOO train

I'm starting this thread before I take the q60 in to the dealer so we can document what may be an interesting story. The car is modified and tuned and is now blowing James Bond style no one can follow me locomotive choo choo train smoke, and its baaaaaad. I just returned the tune to stock, Not going to try and hide anything, but looking forward to what the dealer finds. 4700 miles on the car and very little spirited driving. hear and there hard pulls and 3 dyno runs. Ill keep this updated. hopefully get some video of the smoke during the day.

It sounds like your 'very little spirited driving' was a little more frequent and alot more spirited then you thought. Good luck on the blown head gasket. Keep us posted.

If this forum software can do polls, someone should start one (doesn't look like I can) and sticky it in turbos and tuning.

I have seen over like 30 people with q50/q60 ranging from 2017-2019 all saying the same thing.. blown turbos/ blown turbo seals/ blown head gasket/ oil getting into the turbos and smoking like crazy.. ITs been coming up alot in the facebook groups.. some guys full bolt on and tuned, some completley stock, some just running lower downpipes and tune so i dont know whats going on.

Update, Dealer asked if I have had the installer look at the issue. I am the installer but my response was the mods are all bolt on and this appears to be turbo related. The advisor said it was up to infiniti to cover the issue. My response was I want to know what is wrong and if its not covered. Not covered then its upgrade time, if its covered then great.

EDIT: the full downpipes are Z1, ehhaust cat baclk is fast intentions. everything else including tune is AMS
