thats wild it only does it on the one side with your X pipe. that should let in smoke out both tailpipes. Im not sure what would cause it to smoke on the passenger side..........

Condensation.

In most cases dual exhaust does not have 50% coming out of each side. It gets as extreme as 85%/15% under some circumstances.

go pull your oil cap off the cam cover...just see what it looks like on the underside. hope it dosent have that nasty yellowish color residue under it. It could clear up after a few days of 60+ temps.

Could be:

Condensation - normal

Engine coolant - not normal. Means engine coolant is getting into the combustion chamber.

What does the exhaust smell like? If it's sweet, it's coolant.

Is that like condensation?

Pull your dipstick. If it looks like a milkshake you have coolant in your oil. If it smells like gas you have a bad injector and a washed cylinder.

If you have a leaking head gasket it will run hotter, eat coolant, boil the coolant, pressurize the cooling system until something lets go and like STL mentioned the exhaust will smell sweet. And 99.9% of the time if you pop a head gasket there is no question that something bad just happened. You would be throwing a James Bond smoke screen that would only stop when there is no more coolant.

Itís probably condensation.

My only concern is it's only one side. If condensation, I would suspect both would be doing the same.

Waaaaaaaaay too many variables.

If it were a head gasket it should be coming out of both tailpipes also. One more than the other but both for sure.

True... With a crossover pipe if should come from both, although not necessarily equally.
