Fuel pressure needs adjustment, or you might have the wrong nozzle on it BE CAREFUL if one of the cylinder ignites you could burn up the entire car!

There's nothing wrong with seeking skilled/professional help in a DIY disaster.

It's probably water. Moisture will condense in the hot exhaust after the car sits for several hours. That moisture will exit the tailpipe when the car is started. Also, when the catalytic converters are working they will convert the unburned fuel and combustibles to water vapor, so it's not necessarily a bad thing to see moisture exiting the exhaust.
