    Could have too much oil. Check the oil. Does it smoke constantly or just when boosting?

    Ninja edit: A little more info on your car etc would be good

    There will always be a small amount of oil burning off from the exhaust etc after doing work like this... oil gets everywhere and it typically all burns off after a short time..

    Other than that its tricky to say what else could be wrong as headgasket changes are pretty invasive/involved jobs requiring loads to be removed/refitted...

    Go back over everything and double check its all connected as it should be... typically oil smells come from damaged PCV hoses

    Make sure the engine can breathe i.e catch can blocked or pipes have not collapsed

    I thought I'd be safe in ASN.
