Citroen Saxo 96 1.1i

Ive just put on a new exhaust middle pipe, new cat and new front pipe. I also removed the manifold when i did as the front pipe bolts were just not playing. I have put it all back on securly. However...

After about 30 seconds of starting the engine there is a thin mist of smoke rising from the manifold. I cant pinpoint exactly where its coming from.

Is this due to the heat reacting with some WD40 that was sprayed on, have i not connected it correctly(which im sure i have) or is it just because there is a new front pipe now attached.

Can anyone help?
