    Thumbs down white smoke under heavy load OPINIONS??

    Just curious I have 111,000 on my 2000 m6 z28
    and since I bought it at 17,000 in 2002
    when ever I get on it hard which is not that often
    because I baby the car, is it normal with the ls1
    to get some heavy white smoke on a hard take off
    out your rear view mirror. I just think that the guy behind me
    must think ooohhh that car must be f'd.

    But I know there isn't a problem otherwise
    it would have broke down with a major issue a long time ago.

    I am thinking its just normal carbon blow by with this
    particular motor.

    What do you guys think???http://www.ls1.com/forums/images/icons/icon6.gif

    No it is not normal and you need to give us more info - any modifications? Is it just smoke on initial throttle or does it smoke continuously under load? What kind of oil are you using? Have you done a leak down test?

    does not smoke on any basis
    but blows out white smoke
    just on the hard take off only
    not at idle not when driving
    only on a hard race take off?

    Car does not, or ever ran funny or problematic
    I gues just a little embarassing on take off at times



    and I use 10w 30 castrol synthetic from 17,000 to now 111,000
    and this car has done that ever since I bought it

    Thumbs up

    Nope, at the bottom of the post window are the icons, you must have selected one or it defaulted. And technically, it's a forum, not a blog.
