I do not know if I would be too worried about that. It looks like it clears up pretty fast. I have had mine blow the white smoke like that on a cold morning start at about 40 degrees. I'll let one of the techs chime in on this one.

White smoke:
Caused by unburned fuel passing through the engine. Some white smoke is normal on cold start-ups.
Excessive white smoke could be an indication of inoperative glow plugs, loose injectors, low compression from worn rings or bent connecting rods, or coolant leak into the cylinders--head gasket or injector well sleeves.

If its from tuning then its just unburnt fuel. Not sure why the cold fix tune isn't working. If I go back to stock there is no white smoke on my truck at startup.
