Just programmed now white smoke

Just installed CAI, 4" flow pro down pipe back, mini max. When I back off of the throttle it is blowing a thin haze of white smoke that is hard do even see. I am running the easy tune in mild. Any ideas?

Did it just do it once, or is it all the time? Could the white smoke actually be light grey since it is so light? Make sure you arent using any coolant, that would be my first guess, after that it could just be a little water vapor burning off since none of the filters are in place now.

Thanks. The only things I have questions about are where the coolant plugs go and what hose the instructions are telling me to reroute back to the degas bottle with the hose connector they gave me? Did you do a waste gate?

The hose will be your smaller vent hose as I call it on the top. You will know what hose once you have everything on the truck. It will be a smaller hose left over with no place to plug in except the degas bottle. As for the coolant plugs, one goes up behind the fan on the block where the vertical cooler was, the other is on the timing cover. It is pretty straight forward. The plugs go where the steel coolant lines used to plug in at. I do not run a wastegate and have never had issues.
