Yeah I have the odometer from the car that the engine came with. And the engine runs perfect and starts right up and has tons of power just right after it starts it blows the thin blue whitish smoke for like 20-30 seconds. It doesn't even smell the least bit like burnt oil it actually smells more like coolant.... has that sweet smell to it. Its hard to describe it smells like an old muscle cars exhaust. and also if I look closely at the exhaust i can see liquid that looks like gas or water dripping out a bit. One more thing if i rev it way up then just let off i can get an occasional flame out of the exhaust for some reason... I gotta get this fixed though!
