O2 sensors may have taken a dump.

Mine did that too when I had my Garrett chip in and lots of people will tell you the same. I see many expensive sports cars that do the same thing... Better to be rich then to be lean. Mine would didn't put out a lot of smoke but I could see it when I would floor it or once in awhile a little when I would be hammering on it and then shift.
As long as the car runs better with the chip in then who cares what the Honda guys think because they are the ones noticing it from BEHIND you.
