A re-built engine shouldn't throw out any smoke. Take it back..

Surely it will need running in for a few hundred miles before it gets 'a good blast'.

Yep, but if the car has 3 miles on it and hasnt been run in he may be OK, as it could be oil in the exhaust. If he has run it in for 600 miles, has jumped on it and still has smoke he is difinately going to need to find out what that rebuild "guarantee" is worth...

It would also be helpful if you described when the smoke happens...at start up, on shift changes...down shifts? :popcorn:
