The smoke is probably from a bad turbo. Pull the hose off the compressor inlet of the turbo and check the turbo's shaft for side to side movement. If it moves a lot, it's bad.

The oil seals in the turbo can be bad. Oil seals in the head can cause oil to enter the chambers too. If you have oil in the intercooler you probably have an oil leak in the turbo. Running rich can cause smoke too.
