URGENT!!! Turbo lag, white smoke?

Got a 2006 f-250 with a bully dog power pup(towing tune) and a straight pipe and intake. Recently my truck has not been hitting boost, especially after sitting at a light, and when the truck goes into "limp" mode or whatever white smoke billows out of my exhaust. Then it just builds boost quickly and runs fine like nothing happened. After this happening a couple of times im starting to get worried. Any feedback would be appreciated.

Try it in stock mode and see if the same thing happens.

My bet is your EGR valve has something stuck in it. Remove the valve and clean it with some brake cleaner and a wire brush.

I tried running it in stock, with no chip and it still bogs down and white smoke billows out. Im gonna take it to the local dealership and see what they say. I know the white smoke is unburnt oil but i dont know whats at the heart of the problem.

Same problem here... I have a S&B CAI and 4" exhaust and mine only does it when its warm outside (above 60 or so). I haven't noticed it since its dropped below 50 here, recently. Any help would be greatly appreciated. You think the EGR needs a good cleaning?

if you are smoking white, first thought would be aq blown EGR cooler. If you get a chance, when the truck starts to smoke, smell it, if it smells really bad and may burn your eyes a little bit, its coolant burning, which means you EGR cooler is blwon.

I have a 2004 with the 6.0 and an EGR delete. Mine is doing the same thing. I am on here looking for an answer also. If anyone can help it would be great.

I have an 04 6.0 if it is blowing white smoke your more than likely burning coolant thru your exhaust which means your egr valve and or oil cooler has gone bad check to see if you are losing coolant thru your degas bottle. Mine had a crack in it before it started blowing white smoke.
