Ok... So I left off a bit of info because I didn't want to skew your replies...

The car was broken into about 6 months ago and I didn't think about any possible consequences for running the stock map with my stage 2 hardware... The other day I noticed that it was smoky while idling... Rev the engine, big puff of smoke. Pull over to the roadside and its not doing it. I then thought that maybe it was just a piece of plastic that I picked up and got on somehing hot... But then a day later and its doing it again intermittently. It doesn't appear to be related to how hard I push the car. No degradation in power, boosts like normal. But that last respnse really has my heart sinking...

What would be your next steps? I could shell out for a leakdown but is like to know of there's anything a bot more simple that I could do to diagnose.

Sigh..
