All forced induction engines are going to have "some" blow-by. Now if a smoke screen is gushing out, that's probably not a good sign. I'd suggest you run a compression test to see if your rings are up to par. If you really want to tear down the engine and rebuild it, go ahead, it definitely wouldn't hurt. However, you may be trying to fix something that's working just fine.
