Need some suggestions

Hello to all, well as it turns out i have a small poblem that i need to fix before it gets big,my 98 prelude sh as been dripping oil, i went to the mechanic to see what it might be he said it might be the oil pan gasket or a retainer that probably leaking oil the only problem is that it should no drip alot of oil but my car requires for me to at the most every two weeks maybe more to add at least 1 qtr of oil or two, so know yesterday my friend says he saw that thier was some smoke comming from the exhaust, now i dont think it was alot since i could not see it but it worries me since i think that my car might be burning to much oil if it is not leaking it, so now here is the deal the same friend told me that i might have to go into the engine and fix pistons and what not, if that would be the issue what are your guys recommendations as to kind of rebuilding my engine, i have future plans for turbo but maybe in a year or two so ny suggestions would be greatily appreciated

The Official Oil Leak Guide - Honda Prelude Forum : Honda Prelude Forums

I would suggest making sure the engine is in tip top shape be for boosting or adding mods.

Check link for info on oil leak areas

Besides the turbo parts, you'll have to get new radiator, maybe remove ac, sleeve your block, upgrade pistons, etc.

And bigger fuel injectors, fuel rail, custom piping, blow off valve, iron sleeves, lower compression pistons, new valve springs and head studs, possibly new valves... you know... the basic sh*t.
