Default 03 Acura Tl White smoke from engine AFTER spark plug change!?!?!?

I have a 2003 Acura Tl Base model with 200,000+ miles on it. I had recently put some cheap $3-$4 spark plugs in it a while back. I recently decided to put the spark plugs in it that was recommended which ended up being $14-$16 each! Well I put them in and started the car right up no problems, until white smoke started coming from the engine itself, more from underneath the engine. So after some research, and what I thought was coming from the valve cover, I changed the valve cover gaskets and spark plug tube seals along with the intake manifold plenum gaskets. I got the car back together and started it up no problem. Then white smoke started coming out at the same areas. Any Ideas or help would be awesome! I feel as tho this car can get easily another 100,000 miles. Thank You!!!

White smoke is usually from coolant, oil burns black or blue colored. Test your cooling system pressure (they rent pressure testers at auto parts stores), and examine for leaks.
