Default Whit Smoke Coming Out of Exhaust?

Here is a video of what is happening!!

So i noticed when I did a cold start on my car (~50 deg outside) that it shot out a lot of white smoke for a few seconds. It started me so I turned it off, wait a few moments and turned it back on. Only a little bit of white smoke came out and I drove off (2 miles to my buddies). I stopped and let it idle for about a minute. When I got back to the car it was smoking a tiny bit out of one exhaust pipe. The smoke im talking about looks just like a cold car does in cold weather when you start it up! Doesn't look alarming just normal, but I could tell this was smoke because it stayed in the air.

Currently I am running these performance mods:

Perrin TMIC
Cobb SF Intake
Cobb AP
Forged BPV
Invidia Catless DP
Perrin Exhaust
Torqued Performance Stage 2 tune

Eric "okayed" the tune to keep it but thats when I noticed the smoke after I did two WOT pulls to send the logs to him. after the car sat for a few hours i started it up and thats when all the smoke happened.

I have been noticing that it smokes a tiny tiny bit when I turn off the car (exhaust pipes) ever since I put this TMIC in...

I also changed the oil 200 miles ago to castrol gtx 5w-30 synthetic oil.


Biggest noob mistake ever, but we learn from our mistakes and move on. This is to educate future noobs who do the same dumb ass thing I did...

The solution was draining the oil and starting fresh. After some investigation I realized the oil was in fact over filled, so I drained it and started again only adding 4.4 quarts and then checking the fill level and adding a little more until it was on the full level. After about ~100 miles of driving the smoke completely stopped as as of now 2/10/13 the car is fine.
