    Default Smoke

    Hi all not sure what's happening with my car I've done a pre cat delete still got the second cat and a cat back non res when the car is left idling for awhile and then when you rev the car a little puff of smoke comes out then it doesn't do it again until it's left idling again the turbo still sounds strong and the car pulls like a train wondering if it's the second cat maybe blocked?? Thanks all

    First important question; what colour is the smoke? Blue/black/white?

    Might be coincidence, but have you an oil restrictor bolt installed since you did the precat delete and catback installation?

    White is a sign of moisture/coolant escaping the exhaust.
    Not a whole pile of moisture in the air of late to be condensate from the exhaust.
    Usual easy check is for mayo (white residue) on the underside of the oil cap, or traces of coolant level dropping.

    You didn't sound sure though. May need another check?

    No no it's white I've checked the oil cap and that was fine I did notice the coolant is going down but not much
