Need some advice...

My truck is spinning like a top, there are just a few minor things I would like to get some input on.

About 1500 miles ago I replaced icp sensor and ipr valve, while I had the intake off I noticed it seemed wet. I let it sit overnight to dry and it still had a wet sheen to it.

Now after doing all of this, I have noticed my truck will puff out some black smoke on first startup of the day, and it will rev out to about 1k to and then settle down to normal.

Other than that no symptoms, and it only does it when I first start it up. Hasn't been extravagantly cold (not below freezing.

So my question is..should I be worried about the smoke on startup?

It doesn't sound like it is worth worrying about to me.
