white smoke = coolant.

Black smoke = gasoline

Blueish-black = oil

DO NOT adjust the AFR table w/o a WBO2, you are literally playing with fire.

I would imagine that it is white at this point because it is pretty cold and I'am running catless.

check to make sure your maf sensor is plugged in and make sure you put the pin BACK IN YOUR PCV that came off your old turbo inlet. If its none of those it sounds like a boost leak, double check all of your intercooler hoses and make sure you have the lines going to to your soleniod going to the right places
