    whats wrong???????? (&*&*($#

    So recently i just bought a 2004 sti with 67k miles it has a brand new stock turbo, invidia downpipe, greddy exhaust, megan headers, kn intake, runnin 17.5 psi on it and within a week. the turbo manifold cracked i drove it a couple times with it like that and then parked it for a week. so then i installed a new turbo manifold today and busted the rear cam seal on accident it did spray oil all over my new header while the car was running . so i fixed the rear cam seal today and i start my car and white smoke is coming out the exhaust pretty heavy. I did notice the white smoke before the headers too but not nearly as bad. i feel no loss in power and car pulls strong as ever and the oil seems fine. the car doesnt overheat, but the smoke at idle is pretty bad even when i rev it and i noticed a good bit of moisture coming from the tailpipe . I already checked the pcv valve under the intercooler. does anyone have any advice on this??????

    What does it smell like?Either it smells like burnt oil or it will smell sweet like maple syrup(coolant).Could be a blown headgasket.Check your coolant level and oil.

    how many miles have you driven with the smoke, daily driving or has it been sitting? What color is the smoke white?
    Waht is the oil level in you engine/tranny/radaitor?
