Remember, taking the car to redline every now and then is good. It keeps carbon from forming in the cylinders and keeps her clean.

Can carbon buildup cause a decent Amount of white smoke from exhaust?

Yes, its more then likely built up around your valves and causing them not.to seal off 100%

Could also be oil leaking into your cylinders as well I believe... Someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

Take out one of your spark plugs and see if their wet or full of oil around the threads.

Hahaha. Yeah I would of cried a little if it was a civic... I kind of like some subaru's I respect them because I'm sure they would all destroy me in a race... But if I ever bought an import or any kind to go fast it would be an Audi S4. Because they are not only pretty sessy, but i'm sure they are comfortable as well.

I like Subaru's a lot, I just couldn't afford to mod one. That blue one would blow me away and he only has a tune and exhaust. S4s look nice but I've heard of a lot of problems with them.

Yeah they scare me I don't even make eye contact when I drive by a wrx. And the twin turbo v6 Audis I heard had problems but once they went to the 4.2 v8 I think they got better but I'm not sure... I almost bought one instead of my car, and I have considered selling my car to buy one. But they are too pricy and I definitely would not want to fix one if it broke. But they are pretty fast stock, for a heavy 4 door car . But maybe I just have a sick love for Audi's

A stock WRX won't beat you, but any sort of modified one will. Those 4.2s are nice but I just can't get over the chance of breaking something

Really. I thought they did 0-60 in like 4.2 seconds but I was way wrong I just looked it up and a 2003 does it in 5.8 seconds. Not as scary now. Haha thanks. And yeah Audis are freaking expensive to fix but I guess anything German is.

For sure the chin and the grill delete. That will make it a whole new car. Same with lowering. Do you not like black??? Why paint it sonic blue, i can think of alot more stuff to do with $3000... Unless money is no problem.

Drove it in the snow for the first time. My self control has improved, but it isn't where it should be. Had to do a couple snow burnouts.

About the white smoke and exhaust... If it's cold you'll white smoke due to condensation. It may go away after the car is heated, it might not.

If the exhaust smells sweet, you've got coolant being burned. Either head gasket or intake (if coolant is routed through intake on that engine).

Oil usually burns grey or bluish and fuel is black.
