Hey I have a 88 iroc-z camaro that has a small oil leak and I took it to the drag strip. It ran good for being stock except I just put a another engine in it that has 80,000 miles on it and when I got up to about 80 mph it starts smokeing really bad. I thought I blew the engine because smoke was every where even in the car. After I raced they sent the reckers because they thought I blew the engine so they could clean the track but there wasn`t anything on the track. It was white smoke. My friend I was racing said it was only coming from the right side under my car. My car uses a lot of oil and alot of water but other than the small oil leak there are no visible leaks. The engine is a 305 tuned port injection. I checked everything the next day and all the fluids was full. It never smokes unless I am going over 80 mph. I would appreciate all the help. Thanks

Head gaskets or possibly intake gaskets are at fault...

does the motor see nitrous/high RPM usage?

My 2 can i have my change?
