Smoke coming out of ac vents at high rpm

Hey guys so today when I got on the gas on my 5.0 and around 5k+ rpm and 100+ mph I saw white smoke coming out of my ac vents and my ac was turned off. The smell was odorless. What could it be? Thanks in advance

I belive that when you go full throtle the cars computer turns the ac compresor off. At that point the air blowing into the cabin is coming out at a higher temperature than before, probably at a different temp than the cabin. just like when you breathe out of your mouth when its cold outside. does that sound logical?

and if air is circulating from the outside.

Every mustang I have owned gives off a burning smell when you get on it repeatedly in a short amount of time. I don't know what it is other than junk burning off the motor. What else could it be ????

Can't say that I have ever seen white smoke though.....

My Ford truck has done that before when it was new. Has something to do with the AC condenser. Nothing to worry about (fingers crossed).

Lol lets hope not! It is new though. Only a few months old. I'll get it checked just in case

It's really nothing to be concerned about. All of my cars have done this. It's just water vapor, like when you exhale on a cold day. It's caused by the temperature difference between the ambient temperature and the blowing air. I think it is really cool.

I'd have to agree, I've seen mine do that on some cold mornings. Lol
