03 gt smoking

Im pretty shure its oil not shure if its my pistion rings. I did a head job on it at the begining if the summer I just finished. I drove the car then after a month or two it was smoking white after temps got normal

I rebuilt the heads
Replaced Valve 3 and 4
Bought the whole gasket kit to rebuild top end
Change oil (royal purple 5/20)and flushed coolant
What could be the possible problems

Did you reuse your head bolts? If I remember right they are torque to yield. Check your oil level and coolant level.

Then it's most likely your piston rings.

Well I don't have a tuner just an intake and exhaust. I was pretty shure that's what it was I just breally started saving the money to get the motor rebuilt but what could I do to get it to maybe slow down the burning of the oil can I change to something thicker?

It's been a while since I looked, but I think Auto Zone or any parts store carries an oil additive that's supposed to help slow down how much oil you burn,
