Drove it pretty fast on sat. night. parked it in the garage. then on sunday when i started it up, it sounded pretty weird. all kinds of smoke coming out fo the passenger side pipe and tons of white smoke. after a few minutes, everything was fine. what do u think?

On your Viper?

Oil in the airbox maybe. Sounds like the venting situation I have read about.

Now where is Chuck or one of the others to tell you what to look for/do?

It's quite possible that you just dumped oil into your intake if you were doing your spirited driving shortly before shutting it down. It gets sucked into the driver side throttle body, which would put the smoke out the passenger tailpipe when you started it back up. I did that once myself. If that is what it was, it's nothing to worry about.
