Any more info on the Motor? Did you buy it built or did it come out of a Donor car? I would investigate where it came from.

I know ,but to smoke that much,The tuning shop did a leak test,and said that the #1 cylinder was at 90 percent,and the #2 was 20 ,and the #3 was at30,and the #4 was at 50 percent ,but would it smoke that much ,and burn that much oil . 4 runs and half a liter of oil was gone . Compression test says pistons are 100 percent

Its all good, I thought it was cute :rolleyes:


Check your antifreeze levels often, you might be burning it, which would be bad. Also check to see if antifreeze contaminated the engine oil. You can look at the dipstick, or look at the under side of the oil filler cap. If the oil is contaminated with antifreeze, it will have the appearance of a chocolate milkshake.

Well unless its just regular break in like Red stated, a lot of white smoke is bad. Bad valve seal would allow oil into the cylinder, resulting in blue smoke. White smoke is caused by burning antifreeze. Only way to burn it is a bad headgasket or a crack in the block. Hope you have a warranty.
