Replaced AOS and still smokes under heavy throttle

I replaced the AOS because of the James Bond smoke screen, but I am still getting it after putting in the new one. Please help!

it doesn't take a lot of oil to create a lot of smoke; residual oil in your intake and aos hoses can continue to burn-off for quite a while unless you give it all a good clean. i would check that first before getting into the more complex/expensive potential causes.

Did you clean the oil out of the entire intake system after you replaced the AOS? If not, it is going to take quite a while for all of it to burn off on its own (one drop of oil makes a lot of smoke).......
