White Smoke After an autocross Run

I took my 2001 RT10 out to a local airport for an autocross event and after each run I would park and when I start the car up there is a HUGE puff of white smoke. It's is definitely an oil smell. I ran again a little later and that time after the run I left the engine on for 3-5 minutes after the run before I turned it off. When I started it up a few minutes later no smoke. The 3rd run I turned it off right after the run and when I started it up, White smoke again. Is the oil just building up somewhere and if I shut down right after a run it burns off when I restart? I just changed the oil 100 miles ago and the level is right at full maybe a hair over, temp is normal, Oil pressure is normal, no aftermarket parts except for a K&N air filers and a cat back exhaust.

Mileage on car / engine?

I'm thinking maybe you are getting some spillage into the airbox from the valve covers venting sans high G cornering.

But I'm just the town drunk on a good day.

Thanks for the reply Dave. It's the normal 8.0L V-10 with 27k miles. I never thought of the Air box angle. I just put the K&N Smooth Flow Intake Air Ducts on when I did that oil change but I'm just loss on why there is no smoke if I let it run for a couple minutes after the run. Wouldn't you think that there would still be a little smoke as it was burning off?

When it comes to the autocross. I got a little heavy on the right foot and spun out but the next 6 runs I cut over 10 seconds from the first run (68+ seconds down to 58.2) so it wasn't bad for the first time ever attending an autocross event. Got my ass kicked by my friend (he was running 48-49) but he should in a GT3RS with 100K in race mods.....

Take the air box apart and look for oil residue in it. Behind the filters on the throttle body side. That will answer that. It will be obvious.

I had this problem on my 2000, when you accelerate hard and then brake hard oil (in this case Mobil 1) burns and you get a white cloud. Scared the crap out of me the first time it happened but does not hurt the car. Go to the Gen II section or even better the VCA board (lots of nerds there) for more replies.

Change how the breather tube goes into the intake. Most will install a "catch can" to keep the oil from entering into the intake. It not good for the engine and it drastically lowers the octane rating of the fuel you are burning by introducing the vapors from the engine.
