    Exhaust blows smoke cloud at WOT???

    I have been told that whenever I go WOT that my exhaust emits a white cloud of smoke, I have yet to see it but figured I would see if anyone else had this happen. I recently put on LTs removed the cats and I also removed the EGR and A.I.R system and was wondering if any one of these could have caused the tune I have on it to make it run rich/lean and all I need to do is get it re-tuned or if it might be something else I am missing

    Your PCV system. Positive Crankcase Ventilation. Basically, spent gases and oil residue being sent back into the intake manifold to have another go-round. The catch can eliminates this. Filters the oil from being re-introduced to your intake.

    Sure is. It cost me a few dollars to set MY car up correctly in my eyes. But it will be so worth it. Onmce a week I was shooting dip stick out on stock cam. Oil everywhere. With the new cam, it helps bleed some of that pressure off. But still have lots of oil in the intake. So far I have everything needed besides the LS6 valley cover that I ordered over a week ago. If my car was running, I would be fucking pissed about waiting over a week to get parts. But its not so I dont give two shits.

    white smoke = coolant burning
    blue smoke = oil burning
    black smoke = extra fuel / running rich

    sounds like u might have some coolant burning issues

    Thats exactly what I was thinking too. White smoke is not good. May have a head gasket problem on your hands. Keep up posted
