Red face White smoke after intake swap

Whats going on . Got a little issue with white smoke. I just swapped intakes on my camaro. After install of all componets back with new manifold, I let the car sit for 24 hours. I cranked it set timming then all of a sudden I had white smoke comming out of the breather on the valve cover. The car did not do this prior with the old manifold, nor have i had this problem before, The motor is the original block just rebuilt, 327. Please lend me some advise if you can thank you. also The manifold I replaced is brand new edelbrock performer rpm out of the box , ne gaskets evrything.

Sounds like you might have a water seepage around the intake gasket. Is there a milky substance around the breather or just inside the valve cover? Also check the oil for moisture. Good Luck

Just refill and run until temp comes up for a few minutes,
Then change oil and filter again, it should be alright.
