I have twin 1986 3208T on my 40 ft Sportfisherman. The problem engine has new turbo plus new injectors. 1000 hours on engine. My problem is at 2250 rpms I start smoking whitish smoke and gets worse as the rpms go up. I also show I am burning close to 18 gallons per hr at 2400 rpms on this engine. The compression is perfect on this engine. Could it be the rack? Or sucking air? Help!

'I was amazed to find the engine I needed in minutes! Even more amazingly, it was less than half the estimated repair cost of the original unit!'
