Smoke when cold!!

Ok so this is new, my truck started smoking when its cold and i go to take off, like from a stop. it doesnt smoke at idle and as soon as the engine reaches normal temp it seems to stop. It looks like oil, but it also looks like it could be unburnt fuel, like maybe its loadin up from bein too rich. The truck is stock except for a mbrp turbo back and zoodad. Please help!!

i dont think so, ive only had the truck a few months so i really dont know whats been done to it. This just started a few days ago. When i got the truck a member here did a check on the truck thru ford and it had only gone back for a front end seal warranty so im guessing not if that didnt show it. What would the flash do for me?

yes i have owned diesels before and i drive a kenworth as well as run heavy machinery for a living so everything i deal with is diesel. Its a good cloud of smoke everytime after idle until the truck is at full operating temp, then it goes away.
