    A lot of 01-02 cars have this problem. You should check out your PCV system first and make sure everything is working correctly. Another thing that helps a lot is installing a catch can in the pcv line. When oil is being drawn back into the engine, it's not only getting burned up and creating the smoke that you are seeing, but it is diluting the air/fuel mixture and causing spark knock. You can make your own catch can setup with parts from home depot/lowes and it should solve your problem.

    Do you need some sort of filter element in the catch can or will just any sort of deeper-well element inline before the TB work?
