White Smoke From Exhaust

I got my new CatLess exhaust put on about a month ago and lately I've been noticing that after I sit at idle and take off, some white smoke comes out of my tail pipes. anyone know what that could be? it sort of stinks also

It could be depending on how bad it is. Does it smell sweet at all? Does your oil look like a milkshake? I have never had white smoke after idle on any Mustang I've ever owned unless it was cold or it had a HG issue.

What you guys never volunteered to go to the gas station with your parents as a kid to sit with the window open and smell the fumes?
