Excessive white smoke after egr delete

Just got the truck back from beig in the shop all week. Egr was welded shut coolant flush new degas bottle new coolant teo new injectors and a new oil cooler. Got it home today and drove it around for a few hours everything was fine. I dropped off my girlfriend at her house and noticed a pile of white smoke coming out the tail pipe. No rough idle no skip no loss of power no wrench light no cel light nothing. What's wrong with it? Beginning to regret my purchase

Truck is a 2005 350. Egr valve still in place but cooler is blocked off

Does the smoke rise in the air or sink? If it sinks, it's coolant. If it rises, it's oil or fuel.

Does it clean up once you get moving? The engine may be relearning its fueling, one of my friends had the same thing for about 50 miles, then it disappeared.

It rises like a dagum chimney lol. I noticed the coolant was a little low but the exhaust isn't wet it doesn't smell sweet and it still runs and idles like a top. I just got it back tonight. I really don't want to give up on this thing this early I absolutely love the truck but it's kinda heartbreaking

Pulled the egr valve this morning, it was left in place when the cooler
Was welded shut, and it looks fine a little dirty but wasn't gooey or steamed cleaned looking.

Truck still smokin a lot and was kinda hard to start

sounds like you have an injector dumping fuel. White smoke that is not coolant is fuel. If you have the truck running and go back to the tailpipe, take a wiff, your eyes will water as well from the richness of diesel in the smoke. I'd take it back before a piston melts.
