White smoke is coolant! If its a boosed motor I whould say you need a headgasket...

u shoulda stayed under 10psi with the stock head gasket. imo sounds like a head gasket to me aswell. switch to a thicker head gasket and that should lower your compression ratio aswell.

White = coolant - blown head gasket
Grey = oil - valve guides, rings blow by etc.
Black = rich!

Leak down test is your answer dude.
Prolly valve guides. My advise is to do it right, once. Marcus Glarner Motors.
