A white colored plug is caused by engine overheating. Failure to repair this condition will result in severe engine damage.

Common causes for this are:
Incorrect spark plug (too hot heat range).
Low octane fuel.
Timing is not set properly.
Air/fuel mixture is too lean.​

well it turned out to be the turbo, wich is good cus its cheaper than rebuilding a motor, and is under warranty anyways, he told me that he had it checked and it was something about the seals, i was at work so we couldn't talk much, he is getting it taken care of at lujan, i hope everything goes well for him, and thanks to the one person that helped with his 2 cents, thanks man.

Actually, I should have wrote cylinder overheating as you can get this condition on a non-boosted engine as well. :readclose
