Yeah the car will smoke for a few minutes after you turn the car on the first time after installing the downpipes...Just like Jeff said its bc the oils and greases that tend to stick and get on the pipes that burn off...

For me I saw the smoking and the smell for the first ten minutes....After that the smoking went away but the smell remained for a day or so...After the day they were good to go (no smell/smoke)
