I think the big puff at start up is oil that found its way in the cylinder from an over fill / high oil level in the crank case. Then things clear up till the muffler and heat exchangers get hot and start to burn more oil that is in the exhaust. I gathered that from your video. Dump the oil out of the crank case and oil tank, add 9 quarts and take a ride keep your eye on the pressure and temp. Loop around your local interstate for a couple of hours stay close to home. Bring your cell phone and some #'s just in case. If you notice with 9 quarts it smokes less on start up you will also have less oil going into the exhaust as it sits over night.
Car does look like its been tracked from the gages being tweaked for better visibility on the track.
