Smoke out of exhaust on acceleration

A buddy was following me yesterday and mentioned when I got on the throttle there was some light smoke coming out of the exhaust. My 2011 Camaro has 11k miles, and has CAI, LT headers, hi flow cats & Borla. I remember when I was watching other owners vehicles w/similar mods that many of them had slight smoke at WOT, so I'm not really concerned.

Or should I be??

How cold/damp was it? I would think a lot of variables determine if it "smokes". If its blac or dark grey then yes you got problems!

Same here. Mostly tires though.

Yeah, I don't think I'm gonna sweat it unless the smoke gets heavy or dark. Hell, my buddy may have seen the smoke from my tires and thought it was from the exhaust!

These engines are soo big the intakes are so restrictive ylu are probably pulling oil from the crankcase. Catch can will resolve the problem
