exhaust question

I installed my 4in turbo back mbrp exhaust this morning and was wondering if it was normal to have alot of bluish white smoke when starting up and taking off for awhile. Is this oil burning out of the new pipe? Also, what does it sound like if you didnt get it seated right against the turbo? Is it very noticable? Thanks for the info guys!

What was the ambient temp outside? Humid? No smoke at all before removing Cat? I put a straight pipe in and didn't see any smoke at all. There will be a decent amount of hissing at the turbo and you will probably smell exhaust in the cab at idle. Make sure that connection is seated properly, it's a ***** but it can be done.

For the pipe being connected to the turbo correctly pop the hood and have a buddy rev the engine a couple of times u will notice if its not right.

Man, once i was finished up and she sat for a few hours i noticed a nice puddle of oil about 5inx5in passenger side about where the flywheel would be, took her down to the dealer and have an appointment for tomorrow. Had another puddle just in the half hour i was there. Welcome to owning a 6.0 i guess.

The 6.0 is a great truck and the aftermarket along with updated parts from ford have this to be a great truck. I would recommend deleting or blocking off your egr cooler while u do that rebuild the oil cooler.
