how many miles since rebiuld? asembly lube will smoke off. did you do headers?
it can be allot of things. since you did stage 2 comps i assume you rebiult the block and got dished or fly cut pistons. maybe the rings whernt done right, the valve stem seals whern't seated right, could be gas, the list can go on for ever. take it back to who installed and if you went to a good shop they should fix for free.. we need more info man. what all did you do?

cams, and all basic bolt ons, arizen seats, cowl hood, and now my buckets got a hole in it (meaning im broke) but when i fix it ill have gears and some trany work

Check for oil in your coolant(check out for water/coolant on the oil cap...if there is, take a look at your oil cooler first! I just had to swap mine out for the same problem.
You can try a block tester to see if it's a head gasket. Not the most complicated thing to do in the world...but very time consuming(if you go by the Chilton's guide, you don't need to remove your oil pan to take off the timing chain cover. I freaked when I saw that because the next step was pulling the engine to remove the oil pan). And the only thing you would need to worry about would be marking the timing chains before removing them so they can be put back on the same way.

Was it sitting around for a while before you started it? It probably will smoke if it hasn't ran for a while. Mine did that the other day, but I had not started it in about a week. Was dealing with my oil cooler.

If you don't have any symptoms like it around for a bit and see if it's just something burning off in your engine. If you aren't hearing any noises and your fluids are good, you might be fine. Just go easy on it.
