Sounds like a blown head gasket. Reason I am saying that is those symptoms but also because I just blew mine and had white smoke, coolant smell and alot of moisture. But that is weird that it would happen just when you did a new exhaust. It could just be that you engine is breathing better and allowing more of the moisture (normal) to make it's way all the way to the tail pipe. One of the main byproducts of the engine is H2O.

Gray, Did you notice any white smoke before you did any of this?

If not, I would say its the cats and all the junk that was in the exhaust system from the "OLD" cats.....

As far as the moisture, thats normal on a good running engine....

I would take it on the Highway and try and blow all the crap out of the exhaust......In other words, run the pi$$ at of it....Always checking your gauges for any loss of oil pressure or overheating....My .02

Good Luck,

Allcruisen :imp :usa

it is all the crap that was stuck in the pipes before replacing them. Take it out of the road like AC says and drive the shit out of it

New cats will have oils and such in them and they will take a while to burn away, at least that's what the guy at air care told me after I failed the test and told him I had just installed a cat just an hour earlier.

No it never blew white smoke before i did my exhaust.. I lift it running for about 30 min and it went away let it cool down and started it again a lot less white smoke I think your right its the cats that need to break in i wonder how long it takes them to break in my tags are expired and i can get a week pass to drive it..

if you drive the shit out of it for a couple of hours or when you go somewhere it will heat it up and burn all the crap off of it as well.
