Suggest that i just leave the car to idle for a good 15 minutes to warm up then go out and check the smoke?

Well if its cold its gonna blow smoke of some sort until she warms up. Hopefully its not a blown head gasket.

Besides HG, what else could this be? O2 sensor? I was told i needed to replace the MAP sensor because the car was overfueling, flooding injectors something shocking and would kill the motor if not fixed.

She isnt smoking white at anything other than idle now, and even that tells me its overfueling because it smells like petrol, put my hand over it for a split second and bam, i feel like im at a petrol station.. Suggestions?

if you put the old map sensor back on (if you still have it) does it still do it. Head gasket whit smoke will also smell sweet due to the glycol burning.

Ill switch MAP sensors back over and let you know.

Nah, this is a distinct petrol smell, not really sweet, luckily its not an oily smell though.
