    Will post a video, just waiting for it too be processed, when you watch the video just skip to after the 2 minute marker, that's how long it takes before it starts smoking.

    It either rolled over and pinched, or your residual oil is burning off

    I'll check it tomorrow, suppose to go down to a friends to cut out my cats and run straight pipes, got a check engine cuz bank one was getting blockage, I happen to have a brand new shark injector in possession that's been sitting so was gonna combo them. for that little extra oomf...any recommendations for replacing the manifold/pipes/exhaust for most gain but at best value? And i do think your right about the valve cover gasket.
