    white smoke just means that water and/or coolant is getting in the combustion chamber. headgasket is mostlikely the cause.

    You could have mixed up some of the vac/coolant lines on the intake manifold.
    Also, could be a bad intake manifold gasket. Pull the plugs to see which one(s) are burning the coolant. You should be able to tell.
