loosen your valve covers and rap the motor a few times, you'll get a good cloud going

I know someone that has actully done that b4 and drove it like that but like 3-4 weeks later his engine blew n he wonders y he wuz only doing it to be funny but thats a costly laugh

and it really wasent even that much smoke untill he came to a stop but it still wasent enough smoke to make a cloud still wasent worth it tho

the car was an old caddilac devill it had a bigg as* moter it wuz a 426 or sumthin like that i dont know cadillac moters too well

Its a perge kit.. i dunno if thats the correct spelling.. it is steam.. realieving pressure..

Nos

i spelt it wrong.. *Purge*

Description: To be the quickest off the line, your nitrous system must deliver pure liquid nitrous from the first instant. The ZEX Nitrous Purge Kit clears unwanted vapor out of the system to assure rocket-like starts, essential for beating the competition off the line. The ZEX kit uses the largest solenoid and delivery system in the industry, creating the "snow machine" effect every racer wants.

here is what the kit looks like

Find the car again

This time ask the Dude what he did to get the smoke effects. I have never seen or heard of that before so it may be something very new or this guy thought it up himself and won't tell you so you can't copy his idea, but ask anyway.

Ummm... Poor oil all over the exhaust manifolds. That should give you some good smoke.
