Did you take front cover off and check it out. They dont seem to be super strong from looking at mine when I replaced it. I imagine it could crack and leak coolant down into the LPOP area. But not sure if that would cause the white smoke or not.
Another weak area is the oil cooler cover. These things seem to be able to crack pretty easy and could be another source for water in oil.
Now I am not sure what pressures are what on these two areas so I have no idea what would travel into what.

MTW stage 1, 4" MBRP, IPR coolant filter, 05 front cover and water pump, everything else pretty much stock.
