Default smoking!

hey, just went for my first start up and letting it idle, all seems well, good idle between 850-865 rpm, but im getting some white smoke out of the turbo/manifold area, doesnt really smell like oil.... could it be just the paint on the manifold/turbo area or something? please help!

Good thing I came across this board before I started my install, I would've freaked when I saw all that smoke had I not known it was normal!

It's when it doesn't stop is when you start to freak.
