    he probably wont be able to reply to his own post due to 'user awaiting email confirmation' but you are quite correct though....

    So hurry hbomb get yourself sorted

    the paragraph below has been lifted from a web resource about white/grey smoke..

    Low injector opening pressure.
    Incorrect valve timing.
    Incorrect injection pump timing.
    Low cylinder compression pressure.
    Restricted air intake.
    Low turbocharger boost pressure due to worn turbo / intake system fault / boost control.
    Water entering combustion chambers due to head gasket failure, cylinder head or block cracked.
