Unhappy white smoke/smelling diesel only

Recently my truck started smoking while I was driving it. Just had most of the major things done to her ie studs, egr delete, new oil cooler. Currently in between monitors, sold off the old stuff and waiting on the sct ts. Of course this would be when I get a problem lol.
Smoke started while driving, let it sit for 2 days while I tried to research the issue. Started her up and had no smoke so I let it warm up and took it real easy around the block and still no smoke. Let her sit for 2 more days still waiting on the sct and decided to start her up and drive around the block again only this time I hit the gas a little just to see and right after I did the smoke was back.
Is the an injector issues? Would appreciate suggestions on how to figure out the problem and or ways to solve it. Thanks in advance.

could be an injector issue. how does the truck run when the smoking occurs?

Let the truck idle, get the smoke going strong, then unlplug injectors one at a time and look for the smoke to stop.

So for example if you unplug #2 injector and the smoke stops then you know that is the injector you need to go after.

If it is fuel making the white smoke, it will be very strong odor at the exhaust pipe. Should burn your eyes...

you can try the power balance. i still would. but if the injector isn't working though (stuck), disconnecting it likely will not stop the smoke.
however, if it were a stuck injector, it should be running rough.
could be a ficm issue. or even ebp or map.
can you check for codes?
nice thing about the more capable scan tools is that you can kill injectors one at a time through the scan tool. or you can do it manually, as a2elvis has suggested
