Default Finally got to drive my truck

So Im 16 and Ive been really looking and applying to stores like crazy to get my truck on the road. So my dad needed a new manifold on his F150 so he said Ill just get this year then you can start paying me when you get a job. Sweet! But anyway there was a few things I noticed on it. The good: super comfy and handled great. Bad: It blew out white smoke for some reason when I started out... what could that be? Wasnt oil was more of a steamy smoke. And 2 it seemed like I had to really give it gas to get up to 65 is that normal on the 4.0's?

your truck has 160 Hp, so it will take a bit longer to get to 65 MPH
