Shelby, does the smoke smell like burnt 15/40 or raw diesel? Try running without your tune and see if smoke goes away. If you bent push rods do to cold weather shut down, ditch the straight pipes! Just put something in there to keep the cold air from rushing up the pipe and f-ing up your valvetrain. On that note, if your pushrods got bent, you had some valve bendage. It may not be bad enough to run bad, but could have worn out seals on the damaged valves. I had this happen on my 68 390 coug with open headers in winter.
