SLight smoke from passenger VC

Well I my two new injectors all buttoned up and everything seems fine, except for after I am done cranking my motor. I have the valve covers off and the UVC harnesses unhooked. I am turning the motor over to try and put some oil in the rails, after running the starter for 20-30 secs I notice a slight amount of smoke coming from the number 7 cylinder. I replaced numer 3 and 8. I am not sure if this is a problem or not, it is very lite and you have to have a flashlight to see it. The drivers side doesn't do this. I am afraid of hydrolocking the motor so I dont want to do anything that could hurt it. Could someone tell me if I am going in the right direction or not?
