Default Oil smell and smoke from exhaust

Well this was an unexpected event... Car has been running perfectly for ever never a real problem. Untill today at lunch.

A bit of recent history. I have gone to Cobb stage 2 within the last two months, and have not had any problems. I drove to mass for thanksgiving which was my first long interstate drive in a long time. I did not have any problems on the trip at all. Got home parked the car since last friday for the past 3-4 days. Drove to work today... everything fine. Then I go to get lunch, park at sandwich shop, dont' turn it off I let it idle... when I came out with food, lots a smoke and it smelled like oil!??? Pretty confused As I have not even really driven it hard or WOT since way before the trip last week... any ideas? Im going to take a close look when i get home and check the coolant and stuff hopfully nothing serious, but I know oil sented smoke coming from the exaust is never a good thing....

Well seems to have totally cleared up... Drove home fine no problems, got on it a few times when I was checking boost with the cobb ap and all looks good no cels were thrown (ever), oil is all there coolant is all there, drove to work today and feels great! Not sure what happened... Im getting a spark plug, oil, and winter tire change tommoroww, Ill have the guy look it over and see if he notices anything.

Thanks,

john D.
