Re: smoke after doing head gasket

it could be light grey/white smoke is water/steam. Take it for a long(ish run) and see if it clears itself (it should do if its just water in the exhaust) If it dosent clear are you loosing any coolant?

However if its black/dark grey smoke that either burning oil or over fueling
