Blow Engine

Few days ago I Installed SS Exhaust Manifold, Ported TD05 turbo, 02housing, walbro 255 fuel pump, and ecu flash. The car ran strong and fine for few days on 92oct 22psi. Now I just went for a little spin, when I switch to 3rd gear I saw alot of white smoke on the back, I imedetly turn off the engine and stop the car. Then I check the engine, nothing was wrong, but after I open oil cup I saw smoke coming out from there... Did I blow the gasket or something??? I need your guys help.

how does the oil on the dip stick look? brown sloppy looking?
do you get lots of whiteish clouds of smoke only when trying to boost?
the flash was done by whom? done for the mods you have?

The ecu was dynoflash profesionaly, and done for the mods i have. The blue/white smoke from exhause raise when the car slows down. And I will go check it out how stick looks, I get back to you on that...

Ok, I check it out the stick, and it looks very dark brown like in any other cars I looked! But its 1/4inch over the level, could that be a problem?

Yes, something like that.
Now when I start the car, I let it run for a while, and everything was fine(no white smoke). But after about 5 minutes the exhuast starts to give me white smoke more and more, so I then turn off the engine. ???Weird???

Usually, white smoke means blown head gasket (coolant getting into the cylinders), but I thought it would blow white smoke all the time, and not start after 5 minutes of running. I know on DSM's if you open the radiator cap while the car is running, and NOT HOT, the coolant will be bubbling if the head gasket is blown, but, I'm not 100% shure.

From the good old
http://members.shaw.ca/costall/1000Q/
"Continual white smoke [is usually due to] a warped head/head gasket and coolant entering your combustion chambers. If you're really unlucky, might be from a cracked head."

If its white smoke its most likely the head gasket. Sometimes it takes a few minutes of running for the motor to heat up and wherever the leak is at, the gasket shifts just right to start leaking. You probably have a small leak from the head gasket. Good news than is that you can get away with just replacing the gasket and not needing any machine work, but double check it all with a straight edge.

Well, its probably when they dynoflash my ECU they forgot to set redline to 7,000rpm. But instead they did 9,000rpm, So when I lunch I missed 3rd gear and it went up to 8,000. So when I look back I saw cloud of white smoke.

And now I dont know if I want it keep it, probably will send them back ECU and let them do it right to 7,000rpm, so the next time I dont blown anything!!!
Ok, Is it hard to get to head gasket? How can I do it right not to mess timing belt?

Well, the entire head will have to be removed, along with the timing belt (obviously). The only way to not mess up the timing is to have it done right.
