Default why is my car blowing out white smoke?

[&o]ok so just lately my car has been blowing out white smoke when ever i take off from a stop light. its fine when im cruzin but it does it every time at the light. i dont know if this has any thing to do with it but it started doing this about a week after i replaced 4 of my 6 cats with straight pipe. also at idle my back end makes this loud electrical humming sound. any help would be great. thanx

White smoke is usually coolant. Not good.

Do a sniff test. White is usually coolant, which usually leads to a head gasket issue. Is it coming from both sides or just one? Also how many miles on your car? What year?

Get if fixed as soon as you can. Its not good for your motor to be burning that coolant. Keep an eye on your antifreeze level as well.
