White smoke with a tick. Can't figure it out. Any ideas?

Ok I decided to post in the problems thread to see if anyone could share some light on my problem. I just under went with the whole big procedure. I did Arps, ford gaskets, new oil cooler, warren 175/stock injectors as well as purchasing a scan gauge 2. Got it all together and time to fire it up. Several long cranks and she went to chugging. After a few seconds the idle cleared up. It's almost instantly started white smoking. I also started to here a tick on the passenger side. I let it run to warm up to operating temps thinking it needed to purge and work it's kinks out. Jump in to drive it through the neighborhood and it just dumps the white smoke out. Seems like the tick runs in sinc with the Rpms. I started trouble shooting and unplugging injectors and it led me too to #7. Unplug it and no change in rpms. Decided my problem was a stuck open injector. Got in touch with warren and discussed it with them and they agrees to replace it .

Fast forward a couple weeks. Got my injector in and got her started. Problem persist no differently than before. Unplug the new injector and still nothing. So this weekend we popped the valve cover and inspected the exhaust pushrod for that cylinder and it looks fine. What we did see was a small black streak on one of the exhaust valves. You could see a little residue on the bottom around the injector cup. Someone on here stated that had the same issues and it was a injector harness but would thy cause the tick I'm hearing? I'm thinking about swapping the new injector with the one next to it to make sure it doesn't follow the new injector. Any ideas? Yes I did have my heads checked and the whole 9 yard. Could it be that one the the exhaust valves got messed up during the machining?

Has it thrown any codes? Have you double checked your FICM connections? Made sure none of the Pins got bent when reconnecting? The injectors electrical connector is fully engaged?

I'm pretty sure but ill triple check it again tmrw. Nope it's throwing no codes through my scan gauge. Also the harness connection seems to look fine. I'm leaning towards a bent/cracked exhaust valve seat at this point? Idk what to check anymore. If I can't figure it out by tmrw sometime it's going on a tow truck. Sighhhhh
