White smoke, oil smell, no CELs (yet)

Well. After a big white puff at start up (I am told this can be normal), I drove the car to work - 30 miles (45 minutes). As soon as i hit stop and go traffic i couldn't help but notice the smell of burning oil. When I got to work and parked, I saw "smoke" bellowing out of the passenger side engine compartment "vent".

No CELs tripped. Haven't had a chance to look much of anything yet (top or bottom of the motor) because I was already late for work.

My first thought was Oil Seperator... but with all the "smoke" I figured if it was "internal" the computer would have tripped a code. A few weeks ago I did have a chain tensioner replaced but I am unsure if the two are related.
