    Milky color is an indicaton of water in the oil. Check your I/C and intake manifold for signs of water or leaks.

    Yep, You are getting water into the oil somewhere. You need to take the throttle body hose from the intercooler off and inspect for signs of water leaking in from the intercooler core. Also take the hose off the supercharger and check for water coming into the intake. You need to find the source of the water before changing oil and running again.

    $840 later, found issue....

    Pirannha intercooler was leaking and had around 1.5 gallons of water in engine

    XS intercooler with alum pipes are now installed and oil changed many times...

    also had to reprogram my key as that somehow wasnt working (starter issue i posted about before)

    Runs like a champ now

    it's water because this guy ski crashed and water got in the engine and when we pulled out the dipstick the oil looked cloudy and it turned out to be water in the engine, i suggest u get it sorted out quickly before more damages occur
