6.0L problems! need some help please!

My stock 2003 6.0 started hesitating a few weeks ago after towing a car and trailer (about 5,000lbs). Then it had a long crank time that eventually turned into a no start. Checked FICM and it was bad, 38V. Swapped it out with one that was from an 06 with a rebuild on it. Dealership did the flash on it and now it blows a lot of white smoke at idle and A LOT of black smoke when driving. Even if I'm slowly accelerating. Sometimes it will idle rough, sometimes its fine. I have plenty of power, turbo spools up fine. Been about 200 mi since I changed the oil, put in a new egr valve, I'm not losing coolant. No tunes, eot/ect delta is from 5-8 deg at all times. New radiator, only thing after market is the muffler. I have about 116,5xx miles on it. Sorry for being long winded I just need to get it fixed so my wife and I can take our trip to flaming gorge, Ut and tow our boat. So any help is appreciated!!!!

You need a monitor to pull codes. Sounds like overfueling.

Yea, I have a 7.3 with 309k on it, I use rotella and a motorcraft on that because I can get it from walmart, it is obviously not a cartridge type filter. So the concerns with the cartridge type filter do not apply to the 7.3. But I see you are having starting problems on your truck, maybe you should consider using the oem cap and motorcraft or racor filters. And noone is disputing the use of rotella?
