Am I being Paranoid???

I deleted about 10 days ago and everything seems to be running great but yesterday when I was idling out of my driveway I noticed a good puff of white smoke. I just caught a glimpse of it and the truck had been running for about 30 seconds when I just happened to look in the rear view mirror. I drove a few miles last night and never saw anymore and this morning I let the truck idle for a minute in the garage after startup and I never saw any smoke but it was dark out so I couldn't have seen any after I left the garage. Would you be concerned. Right now I'm running the PIP performance tune.

It may have just been some condensation in your exhaust system

Then again, it may have been your neighbor's "white" cat, who crawled in there to take a nap.

Or, you may have stretched the head bolts from running WOT, causing water contamination and are now going to be out $$$$$$ repairing it.

That's funny.

I think it was a fluke. Ever since tuning I have babied the truck. It hasn't even seen 20 psi of boost yet. Been running great today. I was more worried about an injector leaking than a head gasket.

Hah, just kidding. Probably just a fluke. About a month after I deleted, I had just left home, truck was cold and pulled up to a stop sign. I was still trying to get accustomed to the new transmission habits and had it in tow/haul mode. I looked in the side mirror and there was sooooo much blue smoke, I thought I had been skidding a tire for 50'. Scared me straight. I attribute it to the motor not being fully broken in and the exhaust brake sucking the life out of a cold motor. Haven't seen it happen since, but haven't really tried and don't want to...

If you actually had stretched head bolts you would have a loss of boost and it would smoke white all the time. I wouldn't worry about that.

Everything is still good. I'm not too worried now. I'm switching to try out the tow tune. That should be a little safer anyway.
