Smoking in Lift?

long time lurker first time posting.

A little bit ago I blew my motor. I believe I fried my rings, and was burning oil. It was to the point where I was not able to see behind me from inside the car.

A few months later I had the motor rebuilt.
My motor is stock. PPE Headers, custom exhaust, no cats, tuned on Power FC.

I have now been driving my car for a few weeks. The rebuilt motor feels good and drives really nice. However I do have a few concerns, that maybe you guys might be able to help me with.

Number one is the smell. I still smell oil burning, there is no smoke at idle or even when I'm just cruising down the road, but I do smell it. The mechanic told me that I was still burning the oil out of my exhaust. Which I guess can make sense, although logically I feel like that should take only a few hours.

The biggest issue I have is that when I hit lift, I definitely noticed a small puff of white smoke. Now I have only hit lift 3 times since I have had my motor rebuilt.

I googled a few things, and one thread says smoking a little at lift is perfectly normal, but most threads say that its absolutely not normal.
The one thread that states is normal is linked here....
http://au.toyotaownersclub.com/forum...-hitting-lift/


I also googled a few other forums about people rebuilding their motors, and are saying it took them 5000 miles before the smell finally subsided. Now this information was not from a 2zzge car. It might have been some SUV forum.

If anyone can help me here that would be greatly appreciated. I dont know whether I should try to attempt another rebuild or go straight to retuning my PowerFC.

White smoke?

Pull the dipstick and see if it smells like coolant.

Thanks for the response. There is no smell of coolant.

I just noticed which sub-forum this is posted in. Perhaps a mod will move it to a more appropriate section. I'm nowhere near qualified to give you engine internals advice, sorry.

The cylinders are sleeved.

I heard however that there are specific honing tools that can hone our blocks. Im curious to know if that is true as well.

How rich is it running in lift and at lift transition? Could just be too much fuel.

Boosted will probably know/place thread appropriately or knows someone who might know. I'm assuming you did a proper break in of the engine after the rebuild?
