I am having a guess but..... Is it possible your fuel reg is faulty and your car is over fuel ing.?

May be worth changing from the other EF if you have a spare 15 mins and see how it goes.

actually i just realised that white smoke your talking about is more likely oil smoke..
remember when we went to wollongong and i said your car blows a lot of smoke..
it smelt a bit like a cross between burning oil and diesel...

OK then if Troy said its an oil smell change with a thicker oil.

If you wanna try the fuel reg, if its the same as my EB its on the passenger side towards the firewall just above the fuel rail end. Has a small black vacume pipe in the top of it and a thicker fuel line under neath it.

Yep

Coolant kills it. If any is on it, wont function right. Water isnt its friend either.

i'll change it tomorrow morning first as it the easiest and i have a couple good ones laying around then move onto changing the other item that everyone else suggested.

Thanks for your help guys i'll let you know how i go

SWC you out there, if you still have that block you were showing me i'd be very keen to purchase it from you as we discussed before build it up while current motor withers away to nothing.

Thanks Brad

g'day guys, im having the exact same symptoms, except mine only started just after i installed a wade 1636
car is fine to drive, but on a cold startup it spits black stuff out the exhaust and leaves a pretty oily smell behind afterwards
iv checked all the vacuum hoses and the MAP sensor and everything seems to be ok
is this just the cam??

cheers
