996 White smoke saga

Engine

Vehicle Information: Year: 2002; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 12600;

I received TSB #1617 entitled "Blue Smoke in High Transverse Acceleration" the dealer and I followed the directions replacing the old dipstick with the new one. We also reduced the oil fill by about a quart. During the entire track day the car felt that it accelerated more easily and didn't smoke at all on the track in "HTA". However 2 out of the 3 restarts yielded a much milder amount of wispy white smoke.I have digital photos I can e-mail if you like .The smoke on restart lasted about 5 seconds. Do you think I have a problem?
