Just thought I posted myself and few others have notice the car doing this.... when just playing with the fuel controller if u add fuel to the car on the upper range it causes the car to white smoke.... just like it does when u have a valve seal going out... it does it at idle or anotherword sitting at the red light.... anyone have a clue it does that.... I mean if u turn the setting back to stock or take fuel out it doesnt do it.... only does it when u add fuel... as if the valve seal were leaking but go away when u turn fuel back down to stock or less then stock..... weird just wondering if anyone else notice that or knows why it does that... thanks!!!

White smoke is water vapor, Blue smoke is oil from like a valve seal. Not sure why your getting white smoke.

Well... Synthetic oil burns white doesnt it?... Im pretty sure it does, but I cannot verify for sure..

I have what I think is a blown #2 again.. and my car smokes REALLY REALLY bad white but now its greyish white with brown when I rev it up.. I think its the Turbo since it started when I wired it in TTC and was not doing it before..

Someone verify if it burns white, Im pretty sure it does to an extent.

you may think the exhaust fumes coming from the exhaust look white, but in actuality it's got a blueish smoke to it as well. That indicates oil. I had a friend who once thought his smoke was white until he had his mechanic look at it. it's most likely blueish-white.

Hmmmm dont think its blue.... but the main thing is why does is go away as i take away fuel..... as long as I dont add fuel to it it doesnt do it....

trust me...the color is such a light blue u really cant tell. Perhaps your turbo seals are also worn out.
