Blue smoke on take off

I have searched this a couple times and finally took it in to the local Ford. When I take off i get a pretty big cloud of blue smoke and sometimes sitting at the light you can see it smoke pretty bad but it dont do it when driving.

A little back story.. about 1 1/2 months ago I put a MBRP 4" straight pipe exhaust. Did not notice any smoking after that. One day I was being an idiot and decided to try and power brake it. It wouldnt even spin the tires so i kept going so the boost was building up for a minute. After that is when i started noticing the smoke.

Well Ford gave it back and said they couldn't find anything wrong. I did change the oil a couple months ago and they said the oil level was at full which they said was too much. The only thing with that is I never noticed it before my dumb moment. My thoughts from searching was maybe a turbo seal but they said they checked the turbo and it was good. So just trying to see if you guys have an idea. It's pretty embarassing at every light clouding people out with blue smoke.

Have you put it on a scanner and read your FICM and/or injectors?

Ford did all that and came up with nothing. They did update the ficm/pcm tune to the newest one.

I had the same exact problem. Mine was at stop lights and on take off just like you. It got old quick and was embarrassing. Seemed to only do it when the truck got warm. Every one here said turbo seal. I took advice and checked inside the downpipe and turbo for moisture or residual oil and there was none. Matter of fact I then straight piped the truck with 4" and cut the old down pipe open vertically in case I was missing something and it was dry as a bone. Nothing but soot. To make a long story short, it was the turbo seal. I replaced mine with a Powermax and I have never been happier. She is the best sounding truck on the road and no smoke at all on lights or takeoff.

Not yet. I had a leaking stocker 04 and replaced it with a new Powermax. I am going to rebuild the old turbo and sell it but haven't gotten to it yet. There's a real good write-up on Ford-trucks.com for help rebuilding it if you choose to. Author is Benchwrench and it can be found at http://www.ford-truck.com/forums/100...0-vgturbo.html

By the way, my bad turbo seal did not even have the swirl effect that the rebuild post i showed you has either. There was literally no evidence that it was leaking on the turbo or downpipe except the smoke out the tailpipe.
