Default smoking engine

hey, you may want to clarify. does it smoke alot when it going at high speed or is it smoking after you turn it off, is it spitting fuel out of the pipe then we may be able to understand more of your problem.

Yes you want smoke out of the pipe while its running Full throttle. This means you have a good amount of fuel going through the car and its getting good lubrication.

If its smoking after its off that could be something else. Do you have a temperature gauge. If not you might want to get one of those so you can more easily see if the car is running hot or cool.
