Leaking intake manifold gaskets perhaps. Did you use OEM ones with no sealant?

And yeah, it often takes a while to burn off all the water that made it into the exhaust and stuff.

If Water Vapor Doesn´t Goes, maybe a Cracked Head... Or just a li´l fissure... if so, maybe you can fix it at a Good Welding Shop, but I suggest you to use the Engine for a While, maybe Vapors go...

Good Luck! :)

My first Subaru was an '84 wagon with blown headgaskets. The previous owner was told the engine was no good. I assumed their mechanic knew what he was talking about and replaced the motor. It blew smoke for 2 days of intermittent running until it started to clear up.

Might be an intake gasket or the other side is also bad. I try to do both headgaskets when one goes bad.
