When my car is running and I am driving normally it sometimes smokes like a white greyish tint from the turbo area and it doesn't smoke from my exhaust.

I think it could be that the coolant is leaking and being burned because I reused the copper washers from the coolant lines, and also the coolant tank is now at half after I filled it to full.

It doesn't smoke at idle mostly when I get back from spirited driving.

Thanks for the help I hope it isn't too serious.

btw I recently got my engine replaced not the turbo

Try to locate the source of the smoke by replicating the issue and looking under the hood.

its mainly in the top left area where the turbo is and I looked under the car while it was smoking and It looked like it was from the middle of the turbo

Be sure coolant and not oil. Those gaskets are too cheap to not get new ones. Also making your own gasket is an option.
