White Smoke...why?

Hey guys. 06 F-350. Would love some pointers... I started having white smoke. I had no coolant loss, no signs of Turbo damage. The shop said head gaskets were okay.. so they did the egr block off w/ the SCT tune.. I pick the truck up and it still has white smoke... please help...

Check your air filter, map sensor and hose, maff and ebp sensor and tube for restriction.
Something has your air /fuel mix ratio out of balance.

check your injectors, too much fuel can cause major damage.

what type of egr delete kit did they use? If you did a EGR cooler delete(sounds like it) and you have white smoke still, you most likely have one of two issues....Im not a master, but have had these issues with mine and talked to countless people on this site about this specific issue...having said that, the two issues i see the most with your symptoms are: 1 or 2 fuel injectors are bad or your FICM is failing.....this is something your diesel mechanic can very easily test for you.....

Alright. Problem solved, I hope haha. I sent the truck back. Its not the head gaskets. All the injectors are great. The turbo was throwing oil. So i guess I was wrong in thinking the Turbo was okay... I put a Garrett on the truck. Thanks for help guys.
