P0611 code / FICM / engine miss, white smoke

Hi all. I know this seem to be a recurring post here, but I wanted to post my condition too and get some answers. For starters, 2006 F350, 106k, Edge Juice platinum, Banks high ram, Banks cold air intake, and Banks turbo back exhaust with no cat. Awhile back I mentioned to my dealer the P0611 code I'm getting for the FICM. He basically said not to worry about it, that aftermarket hop-up add ons will trigger it. I let it be. Now, as of about 2 weeks ago, I'm getting good amounts of white smoke at cold start and idle. Also, I'm noticing a miss occasionally at certain RPM levels. Lastly, I checked my EGR valve, and it's nasty dirty. I plan on doing a full delete, and I'm sure that will help my 6.0 but wont help the miss. Any suggestions from you guys out there? One last thing...is it possible that there are more codes stored that my Edge / Attitude isn't picking up? Such as injector codes, etc? Will reflashing the FICM fix this? Thanks!

2006 F-350 6.0PSD CCSB Lariat, Edge Juice Platinum / Attitude (being replaced by SCT with tunes by Innovative), Banks Monster Exhaust (cat delete, muffler delete), Banks High Ram Intake, Banks Cold Air Intake, ZooDad, High Idle mod....SOLD! Onto the next..

Goose...thanks. Reflashing isn't an option?

This might work. Clear the code with the tuner, reset back to stock. If the code comes back, bad news, FICM is probably giving up. If the code doesn't come back, better news but still bad. Could be a bad tune. If I'm wrong, someone please let me know.
I'm not throwing codes but I do have a "less than perfect idle". It kinda hiccups every once in a while, mostly when the motor is cold. Considering swapping my tuner because of it.
