ZZ383 Bad new continues I guess...

Sorry to hear you are having issues with your ZZ383 similar to mine. If I was a betting man I would say that they forgot to seal the intake studs, and the oil is getting sucked into the intake chambers. If you read all my post you will see what I have learned. The ZZ383 Stroked pulls a ton of vacuum. And given that you are seeing smoke on decel, that is when the motor is drawing the most. Keep me posted. One would think that if we could get enough folks together who purchased problematic ZZ383's in 2012 that GM owes us something.....
