6.0 blowing haze of white smoke

I have a 2006 F250 6.0 powerstroke with egr delete, arp head studs, sinister head gasket, new high pressure oil pump, injectors replaced at 140k miles. Truck runs as good as my 99 7.3 I had. My 6.0 now has 204k on it and has started blowing a haze of white smoke when idling and a big puff of white smoke when taking off. Running down the highway, it doesn't smoke at all. I have read all kinds of forums on here and other websites related to this. About 2 weeks ago, my truck was empty and pulled in to filling station, filled truck full of diesel. When I started the truck it spit and sputtered and died. Took several attempts but finally got it cranked. Has ran fine ever since. Took it to my diesel mechanic. He put his computer on it, and he said the injectors and everything looked fine. Truck still is smoking as stated above but runs fine. I have an SCT tuner on it set to performance mode, returned ecm back to stock, and still smokes. Any advice would be appreciated?

Mine is doing the exact same. My dealer is saying turbo seals. If you are muffler/catless, check for oil in the tailpipe. I thought I had a stuck injector but oil in the tailpipe pretty much told the tale.

You may have some accumulated water in your fuel, or you may have a coolant leak into your intake manifold, via the EGR cooler.

You need to sniff test it and report back.
