My truck has 179000 miles on it, how much is too much blow-by? It has like a little stream of white/blue smoke coming from the oil fill when I remove the cap. Its similar to a lightly smoldering cigarette. Is this too much or about normal?

So if you idle up your truck will you notice the blow by disapate? Also couldn't the blow by be the oil releasing gases from being heated also just like when you heat up cooking oil?

I am wanting to make 425 rwhp, would 160 cc single shot injectors, Terminator or similar HPOP, and Dominator 66 Turbo from Beans put me in that area? Would I be able to do the injectors and HPOP, before the turbo?
