Angry new injectors, still smoking?

I have an 06' f250 with arp, studs, new HG 10,000 ago, egr delete, 8 new injectors yesterday. Between 75-170 degrees Still smoking? (white smoke) No coolant loss.. Strange thing is it appears to be a mist of sorts?? ideas? 11.5 mpg/city regardless of pulling a trailer. I think a separate issue is the blueish smoke when I step on it at operating temp. Would the glow plugs have a code if not working properly?
custom tune SCT
FICM 47-48
no overflow indicating HG failure.
Thanks for your time.

90% of the time the glow plugs will set a code. When you start you truck up cold does it fire right up or does it have a slight miss until it warms?

check it for codes, the check engine light doesnt need to be on for it to be holding some codes. im going to guess glow plug problem, or bad connection

No codes. Had it hooked up to a laptop at the shop. Everything looks normal. Cracked head? How can I do a coolant pressure test. Where I can let it sit over night to see if it holds psi?

Also, I pulled the oil fill cap off and it puffs a little white steam? Very faint, maybe 6" high
Driving thru town the etc was 208 and the eon was 210. Its 70 degrees outside today. Those Temps seem high.

I don't think they were. I asked the mechanic where he sent the heads off to, he said he didn't need to "they looked good" he must have an amazing eye

I'm really tempted to get rid of it. Any advice would be much appreciated.
