What's the smoke?

Between shifts you can see a puff of smoke. I was lifting between the shifts. I didn't notice until the video was in slow motion. Major panic attack. It still runs strong, though. Any ideas on what it may be telling me?

I don't know how to embed the video so I attached it. Can you embed a video in your message?

Re: What's the smoke?

typically that would be early signs of valve seal problems, lifting from full throttle simulates a hard deceleration, it might also be oil getting past the PCV.

done a leakdown test lately?

Re: What's the smoke?

First, thanks for looking at it. Actually I haven't done a leakdown since the engine was installed several thousand miles ago. It's a good place to start.

Re: What's the smoke?

dont be alarmed, it wasn't smoke it was dust, i was just too fast for the video to show me coming past you...

it can also be in the tune, depends how the tune is written.

That's it! It's hard for us old people to see that fast!

I wish my 02 had some of the same stuff yours does.

Re: What's the smoke?

thats a good point orange, being in the tune that is..

I wonder about the PCV though, I actually moved mine because of stuff like that happening with the motor that he has the stock stuff isn't up to snuff

Re: What's the smoke?

Thanks Bubbafinch.
The best so far (in the 1/8th) is 7.64 and will run 7.70's with regularity. I do think there's more to be had with my current combination. 60 foot times have been 1.59 - 1.7 Mph is generally 90-91. That's with the old man (me) driving.
