Turbo Oil leak? white smoke pics inside

Ive been driving my 6.0 and this week I noticed a bit of white smoke at startup. I just figured it was because of the cold/ custom tunes/ just got my cat cut out. It isnt.

Today it started smoking a whole lot sitting there ideling at a stop light. Thankfully I was 2 blocks from the house so I made it home and shut it off. When im driving it and building boost it doesn't smoke (from what I can tell).

I suspect that some sort of seal inside of the turbo went bad but let me know if you guys have any ideas. Maybe these pictures will help. Thanks in advance.

BTW 53k miles just got it back a week ago from the dealer. It got studs, gaskets, egr cooler, oil cooler, and hpop.

pop the down pipe off and look at the turbine housing and down pipe. see if its soaked with oil or coolant. Running tunes with an OEM egr cooler, you are braver than me... shoulda deleted that.

It was a blown seal inside the turbo. Oil was hitting the hot exhaust pipe. I drove it to the dealer and got it covered under warranty. Ended up being a small seal. I guess it was like 5 dollars but 300 in labor to fix

I too have noticed a little white smoke at a stop light and at start up (the only mod is a turbo back w/cat and muffler delete). I’m going to look at my down pipe to see if there is any oil. I kind of hope to see oil in there because I’m afraid of an injector going out, so a 5 dollar seal sounds way more do-able. Does anyone know what else would cause white smoke at idle when at operating temps?

From the research I've done white smoke at idle, start up, or going from a stop light is turbo, drain/feed tube leak. Busted egr cooler, injector stiction, bad head gaskets. And I'm sure there's more. Taking mine to the shop this coming weekend and will update on exactly what was wrong with mine.
