Now that a day has past, and I've been able to reexamine things
in the daylight. I can see that the water vapor? is coming just
from the driver side cylinders. The left exhaust only. And after
tightening the drivers side of the intake manifold another quarter
turn, the smoke? is gone. I guess it must have been leaking
at the water passages in the intake as I'd suspected. I've changed
the oil and filter and have now even made a couple trips around the
block, and so far things look great.

My installation experience with Edelbrock Performer and Performer RPM
manifolds on the 460 is when using recommended torque and sequence
specs. Most important is re-torqueing the manifold, in spec sequence,
after the engine has been brought up to operating temp and then cooled
to climate temp. I then check it again after about 100 miles of stop and
go operation. Heat fluctuations have usually changed the gasket material
composition to where some tightening is required.
