Smoke from stop

I posted about this issue awhile back and received some advice. Well a month later I'm still having an issue. She starts right up and runs fine, nothing unusual until i start moving. Between 0 and cruising speed she smokes, alot. Got an Edge CTS today and drove around a bit and nothing crazy came up except my EOT running 20* below ECT consistently. I recently did an EGR delete and had trouble starting it. Found out it was air in the oil system. I'm kinda thinking it is related to that, but I'm not 100%. Per recommendation, I ran a bottle of Hot Shot oil additive to no success. Any ideas?

That does not sound right. Your EOT should be higher than your ECT once the engine is fully warmed up. What are your temps after driving 20 minutes or so? If your ECT is in the 190 - 194 range and your EOT is in the 170 range I would suspect a sensor issue.
