Yep! Scary Story ...

And, there is no way anyone can convince me that the TB skipped a tooth on the IP sprocket. The IP is the easiest item in the path of the TB to rotate, excluding rollers/idlers. If the TB in fact jumped a tooth, it would have been at the crankshaft sprocket where the greatest amount of stress and least number of teeth making contact.

White Smoke is a timing issue. If it wasn't doing white smoke on start-ups prior to the incident, then it is not an air issue either (no partially plugged EGR or Intake).

You need to find a guru ... Also, they need to give you the TB that you purchased and not charge you for the one they bought and installed.... just saying!
