New Head Gasket?

Today coming home from work. My friend and I were messing around on 95.

I got it in front of him and he said I was blowing white smoke consistently at wide open throttle. Now the first thing that comes to my head is head gasket.

I was asking if you were sure it was pure white or did it have a blue tint or did it smell sweet. The mofo said he doesn't remember.

I've heard the H22 burns oil. I'm used to having smoke outta the tail [RX7], but not sure about this. If it is coolant. Then monday I gotta get this done.

Did it look frothy? Frothy oil=coolant in oil

What about your coolant, is it oily?

When my Supra head gasket went it went, I shut it down right away white smoke was pouring out even at idle. If you are blowing a head gasket I'd say its weak not blown.

Yeah I had a head gasket go like that on me in an old ford tempo...

When they blow like that, you know it... I was on the highway and it started ticking a little bit... it increased in intensity over about 30 seconds and then I looked in my rearview and had a trail of white smoke behind me thicker than you could possibly imagine...

I jus checked the oil and coolant. Both are kosher.

It pretty only happens [according to my friend] when I typically downshift and open the throttle.

So you think I should get a compression test to be safe?

What sort of RPM are you doing when it smokes? H22s always blow a little smoke on the high cam with the stock tune.
