Engine Performance problem
1987 Pontiac Firebird V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 130000 miles
im looking to buy this car and its not the stock engine. Its a 383 with sleeved cylinders, forged pistons and crank with aluminum heads and comp cams with 1.65 roller rockers and headers. The car smokes when its cold and it conserns me a little bit, im a mechanic but im only just out of school and looking for a proffessional opinion. I know reasons why cars would smoke but I dont know if it may be because the engine is new. It only had about 13 hours on it. I have little experience with performance engines. Is the smoking a big issue or is it just because the engine isnt broken in yet
have the same problem?
