1986 325es e30, Can't stop smoking

I have a beautiful 325es BMW that had an engine fire. (Mice ate through the cold start line) I rewires the entire car and got it running great. I put 300 miles on it and the starter when out. So when i was replacing the starter i decided to put in new injectors. The new injectors made it smoke blue a little, so i got a that smoke away and put it in the engine. (NEVER NEVER again) Within 40 miles of driving the car it could fill the entire neighborhood with smoke. I pulled the injectors, rebuilt the head, and swapped the lower end with a functioning lower end and the car still smokes. It spits water out the exhaust when it's cold and makes a puddle the size of a basketball, then once it's warm it smokes bad. Any advice? This car really means a lot to me and i would like to see it back on the road. Thanks in advance for any help.
