Question smoke!

Hi, I'm looking for info on my problem. I am currently checking the ccv inside valve cover but are there any other reasons why I might see smoke coming from one tailpipe. I pulled plugs from that bank and they looked pretty good. What are the chances of a bad valve seal?

Any ideas?

thanks!
