I just installed a new HKS muffler, after pulling into the driveway I turned off the car and the muffler let off white smoke. This happened when I drove home after getting it welded. It's faint but also smells!

Is this normal? Maybe it'll go away?

Chances are it's just like kazoo2u said, just some antitrust spray it had from factory to keep it nice and shiny if it stays sitting on a warehouse for to long.

Take a look around the weld work( if welded) and around the muffler itself, stormrockie has a point.
Make sure its not touching plastic or anything that can deform or catch fire.

If it still smoking for more than 2 or 3 days, bring it back like Thedarkknight suggested.

Exhaust products from reputable shops are warrantied. My prior vehicle had an full aftermarket exhaust and I needed an adjustment done, so I went back... it was covered under a limited lifetime warranty.
