Spt Exhaust Issue

I just intalled the Spt Catback exhaust for my 09 wrx. Upon driving for a few minutes to check her out I have noticed a lot of white smoke coming out the tailpipes. This smoke also smells. Is this just an issue with having hot exhaust burn through for the first time. Or is it another issue? There are no current issues with the car, running great, if anyone has some insight on what to expect from brand new exhausts out of the box please let me know. Thanks everyone.

This one is easy. Its just the oils they put on the new exhaust. So, that the metal doesn't attempt to corrode when its sitting on a shelf or during shipping. Plus, the oils keep it shiny and new looking.

Fortunately till now I've not faced any smoke problem but I learned that the color and the smell of the smoke can say about a lot of the problem.
