1996 993 recent top- end rebuild now with startup exhaust smoke


Vehicle Information: Model: 993; Year: 1996; Body Type: Cabriolet; Total Mileage: 80,000;

Dear Joel,Thank you so much for all of your advice...a simple stroll through all the previous questions and answers demonstrates all of your hard work. Yes, the question...I had a top- end rebuild completed about 1000 miles ago because of SAI problems. The car runs great. I've noticed smoke from the driver's side exhaust just on startup...typically when the engine is cold. There has been no appreciable oil loss by dipstick. Any explanation? I also mention for humor sake...I found your answer already... I cannot pass inspection now because the OBD is "not ready". Crazy car.Best Regards,eric
