this is from someone else's post on clubsi:

smoke comes in 3 colors; White Blue and Black.
White=Water/coolant...most likely a headgasket.
Blue=Oil...most likely Bad rings
Black=Fuel...At WOT, unburnt fuel...you're just running rich, nothing to worry about

hope this helps.

My mini-me set up smoked like a little bitch after we swapped the heads. I thought there must be something wrong, but it just took a couple to burn off, I guess. It runs okay now, and the black smoke disappeared after a couple days.
