Blowing white smoke

So I just finished EGR delete and oil cooler this afternoon. Started her up and she is bellowing white smoke. No loss in power but I smoked out an acre. If I let her idle she smokes slightly but when I rev it up it pours out. What did I do wrong? Did I not let it run long enough? I only have 84,000 miles on her and now she is starting to piss me off

My exhaust was/is still saturated with oil from when it went down the first time. Does it just need to burn out?

I would think that it would burn off after 15-20 minutes or it was at operating temp. I would drive it up the freeway and do some WOT. If it is still blowing white smoke, you might be looking at a possible injector issue.

There is no coolant in the oil correct? Did you swap the old oil cooler with the Ford OEM one?

I swapped the oil cooler with an aftermarket cooler from CNS motors, do you think that's my issue? There doesn't seem to be any coolant in the oil

Smell the white smoke, if it smells like raw diesel, then it's a stuck open injector or fuel leaking into the cylinder. If it smells like oil, could be turbo seals blow out and is dumping.

Definitely smells like oil and the turbo is blowing it through the lines and it's lost a lot of power

Yikes. Well if it's leaking then I would try a rebuild kit.
There are a few different vendors, I'll let you decide which one to use.
Just Google "Garrett Turbo Rebuild Kit" making sure you get your MY.

I would also get the Blue And Orange orings and the gasket (It's 15 dollars)
And if you don't have the updated turbo feed tube I would do that as well. (the old style is stainless mesh, the new style is one solid pipe)

EDIT: a kit like this: http://www.dieselpowerproducts.com//...FYpffgodgokALw it should be about 150-160 ish.
You don't need the kit with the Unison ring, vanes, solenoid.

The aftermarket oil cooler is probably fine. You will know if oil gets into the coolant or coolant into the oil, even a small amount makes a very noticeable change of both liquids.

Sounds like you just need the turbo rebuild kit (above post). If you haven't cleaned your turbo yet with the 1" arbor scotchbrite process, I would do that as well.

Oh, and if your MY has the smaller turbo Drain tube. Change that out for the new one as well. Sorry for the rambling. LOL.

Blowing white smoke

Thanks for all the help, I actually have the turbo rebuild kit sitting next to me, I have taken the turbo out and put it back in 3 times in 2 weeks so I'm getting pretty good at that very poorly designed process. My EGR delete kit came with the solid pipe to replace the y-pipe and I already installed that pain in the @$$.
