    Ok here is my ordeal, The same thing happened with both my civic (that i drive now) and my 97 accord. I had this custom exhaust done (same person who is now out of business) and i could really feel the large gain in horse power, but.... at a cost... a few months after it happened to both veichles, white smoke started coming from the exhaust, and oil and gas deposists were left on the back of the cars in large amounts.... (some of my friends say that my rings are fried) but i'm not sure about that... so help me out.. thanks

    well i'm shifting way before the red line... oh... another thing i forgot to add (sorry) it's an extremely loud exhaust on the civic (more so than the accord) could the loudness of the exhaust system have any part of it (hey u don't know anything till you ask right?)

    as far as i know:
    white smoke = coolant
    blue smoke = oil
    black smoke = too much fuel

    Yeah, I'm with E Solsi. It sounds like you may have blown a head gasket. If there is water dripping from your muffler you'll know. My brother's stang just blew a head gasket. White smoke, oil and water comming out the exhaust. Not a good thing.
