What color is the smoke? Temperature outside? Is it all the time?

Mine does also, but not every time. Only 500 miles on the hemi now. Seems that when it is parked on a reverse incline on my driveway, it happens. Maybe oil left in the heads get past the valve guides and leaks into the cylinders? Definitely oil smoke. Only lasts a few seconds on start up, then, no smoke at all. Keeping an eye on oil usage during this period to see what develops, or just goes away after about 1000 to 1500 break in.
