Default Low idle, LOTS of smoke

Okay, So I bout my first 2004 wrx in the best color in the world (wrb) and Everytime the car is cold, especially on start up, there is A LOT of smoke coming from the exhaust. as it warms up there is less and less, and after about 5 minutes of driving it warm, it stops. I also noticed when it is warm, it idles low, at about 500 rpm, sounds like the timing of the idle is off. I did use the Accessport to adjust the idle, so it idles at about 750-800. If anybody could help me out, or give me some suggestions, let me know. If you have any questions to help you make a diagnosis, let me know. Also shoots water out of the exhaust.

Here's a video I took...

Thanks for any help.
