Default Puffs of black smoke for integra TypeR

I have a 1998 Type R and which I maintained it like a baby and did
regular oil changes. It has about 74000 miles on it. I drive it
pretty aggressively in the VTEC range, but never bounced of the
redline.

Recently my friend following me said that when I floor the throttle
first couple of times, he saw puffs of black dust. This happend at 10
miles per, 30 miles per at WOT.This dust is accumulating all over my
rear bumper etc.

I am really worried about this. I got a compression test. Here are the
results
220, 220, 218 and 214. Also I got a leak down test which came back
10-13% well with in the Acura range.

I started monitoring oil consumption and I added about 0.5 quart for
every 750 miles since the last oil change.

The dealer is clueless. Please help me. If you know any good mechanics
in the Atlanta are please let me know.

Black or blue? Blue is oil. Black is rich mixture.
Any chace you're running in open loop? How's your milage?
Pull a plug. What's the color?

when you go WOT, the computer goes into open loop, and it blindly throws
maximum fuel into the engine. this is normal with type-r's and gs-r's. the
black smoke is unburnt fuel.
