White smoke isn't a good thing if your buddy is telling the truth. Usually indicates the presence of coolant. Might be something relatively simple like a gasket, but could be serious like a warped head or a crack. Get it checked out and soon.

Duct tape can't fix stupid...but it sure helps muffle the sound

theres a lot of maps that u can try out.. just grab one thats closest to your set-up and load it on the pc3 and see if it helps.. but the best way, of course most expensive, will be to dyno tune it..

custom map is the best mixture. be sure to bring Oreos if your oil is milky too.
