i recently had a full inspection done by a shop about a month ago , they also are the ones who reinstalled my stock exhaust system, they are oe of the most reputable shops around

so idk how it could be that

what did the smoke smell like?

burning wires? burning oil? how much smoke?

did you recently have someone do an oil change? they could've spilled some oil and now the engine heat it burning it up.

WOOOHOOOOOOO EVERYTHINGS OK :d

got my boys to lift the car, turns out there was a big ass plastic bag wrapped real good around the ypipe, one of my intake hoses fell off, and the heatshield for my intake was rattleing, so basically all small stuff that isnt bad

got it all taken care of :)
