Default white smoke

Hello everyone. I have a 2006 Mustang GT and just started to notice white smoke coming out of the driver side exhaust? I just put on the JBA axle back about a week ago and I don't remember it doing it before. At first, I thought it might be the head gasket but since it is only coming out one side of the exhaust it kinda leaves me wondering. I only have 1500 miles on it too which makes me wonder how it could possibly be a head gasket. Has anyone else noticed this before?

I took a look at it again this morning and the smoke is coming from both the exhaust pipes. However it did go away after it had been running for 10 minutes. Guess this means it could quite possibly be the head gasket. Any help would be appreciated since this is my first mod motor.

Could it be that it is cold outside and your car is cold and warming up.

It's probably stuff inside the muffler burning out from break in. If it does it in a couple days, then there might be a problem

I think it is a lot of smoke since for about 3 minutes I saw smoke coming in front of my car while I was parked in the drive way sitting in the passenger seat. I live in FL and it was about 85 degrees outside so it definately wasn't since it was cold outside. There is a little condensation since the mufflers are still being broken in. I smelled the smoke and to me it smelled like a hot musty coolant smell. I think Im going to go by the Ford dealership tomarrow morning and talk to someone about it. I want to get this taken care of cuz Im waiting to get my JBA long tubes on the car. However, this afternoon, I did not see any sign of the smoke at all. I hope it is just the mufflers.

I wouldn't worry until it becomes a purple haze!
