    For those who might be interested.....

    I started on my 350 to 6.2L with ATS Turbo swap about an month ago and now it's running. Still have a few bugs to work out

    They're supposed to smoke when they're cold, as long as it goes away as it warms up...plus when it's cold out they don't really warm up until you drive them a little.

    If you're still getting smoke the injection timing may be a bit retarded.

    Ya but not this much ... it would be concidered excessive.

    The engine ran fine before pulling it ... I added a ATS turbo and installed in my CC ... now the idle is high, smokes like an SOB and sounds louder that a powerstroke. I have to turn up the IP fuel delivery, check for air leaks, chech the IP timing and possibly adjust the idle speed. I am not too worried about the smoke until I can get it to normal operating temps.
