I drive a 2016 Veloster Turbo with 56k miles; I'm kinda lost here, A couple of months ago the car was having really bad Oil Blow-by due to what we thought was a bad turbo then after taking the turbo out of the cart, the turbo needed a rebuild since the wheel was wiggling and moving pretty rough also scoring the inside of the turbo a bit. Took it to get the turbo was rebuilt and finally installed it back inside into the car today, we turned on the car today and let it idle with all the white smoke exiting out to hopefully let all the gunk n stuff out of the turbo and internals, an hour later, we still get oil blowby smoke (white smoke) exiting out the car and getting a P0078 code first active then inactive from a check engine light which links to the Variable Valve timing solenoid or Exhaust Valve Control solenoid. Could those solenoids possibly be the issue of why I'm getting oil blow-by if they go bad?

Sound like bad piston oil control rings. If it were caused by valve seals it will only smoke during engine start and then clear out. I will pull the spark plugs to see wich one is dirty with oil and then you will have an idea on wich piston rings are bad. Hope the best for you. Good luck!

we still get oil blowby smoke (white smoke)
Hopefully someone somewhere has pointed this out already, but oil smoke is blue; white smoke = burning coolant.

Blue tint = oil
White and sweet smelling = coolant
White can also be normal condensation in some conditions. Need someone experienced to lay eyes and a nose on it. :)
