White smoke usually indicates thatwater (coolant)is entering the combustionchamber and comes out as steam/vapor through the exhaustafter the burn.
I don't see how a new exhaust system could cause that though....?

I think you have a problem unrelated to your new exhaust. I agree with virgin1...coolant in engine. Change out your engine oil and see how it looks...if it's milky, you've got coolant in your oil.

white smoke - water/coolant
black smoke - fuel (running rich)
blue smoke - oil

Possible blown head gasket.
