    08 SHO smokes sometimes???

    Oils not overfilled, 77 hours, S/C was replaced at 73hours, no blow by on hose going to intake. Was thinking that there might be some fogging oil maybe laying around in the intake tube as i have only run it 3 hours since de winterizing or maybe fuel stabilizer??? It is white smoke as far as I can tell. Did some wide open runs and didnt smoke, it only really smokes at idle and small revs on trailer.

    White "smoke" is actually steam, so nothing to do with engine oil or fogging oil. Since you're seeing steam at idle and on low revs when trailered, it's most likely just water remaining in the exhaust or IC coming in contact with heated metal. If you're not seeing any water on your plugs or in your oil, it's almost certainly nothing to worry about.

    white smoke is water probably condensation laying in the intercooler and once you start it then it gets sucked in the intake.

    I have taken my lower hose out of my type 14 intercooler and have seen as much as a half cup of water in there. I would not worry about it especially if you live in a very humid place like we have here in Florida.
