From many pilot's memoirs i read that both German and Soviet fighters would produce smoking exhaust when going in full throttle and with a boost system engaged. Some engines smoked that bad that they were mistaken by pilot for damaged by fire aicraft, but in fact their engines were just emitting smoking exhaust.

It would've been nice to model in the game.

Not quite the same thing, but if you run rich you get the same effect, especially at a distance. Take out a Yak, boost the mixture to 120% and fly up to 4-5 k. You outta see a nice thick trail behind you. You'll also lose power, so the damaged engine illusion is 2 fold http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
