Losing coolant after leaving reputable shop.

Yesterday a very good Powerstroke shop finished my truck. We test drove it and it had smoke coming our the exhaust at idle. The shop owner told me its the leftover oil from a new turbo from a vendor here that the seals blew oil everywhere. I thought ok but it stayed consistent and got worse. The list of mods is as follows, 175 Warren stock nozzles, ported and polished from Gearhead 2012, ported intake manifold and tunes from Matt with a stock turbo as the other blew out. We did hook up a CCV canister to catch oil. Here's a pic of it. Well the pic doesn't work. It's a two two port plastic canister about 8" tall and 5" across. CCv gases come in the bottom port (2") off bottom and go back to the turbo out another port 3" above the bottom port. Basically the canister functions as a knockout drum to let gases flow and retain oil. Heads are studded, oem gaskets everything was done correct and yet I had to put 5 gallons of coolant in my truck last night to drive 450 miles. Any help is greatly appreciated. The heads were magnafluxed before sending them to Jared. The CCv hose is blowing out a constant stream of smoke. I don't know where the water is going, none in the oil. Chuck

I use supermotors.org to host my pictures but I'm sure there are a few more out there.

Pics need to be on a hosted site like Flickr, Photobucket or others and you select the "Image" link. The other way is to "Go Advanced" and select the "Paperclip" to load the picture within the limits as stated. If your photos are too large, a program like PIXresizer is very good at resizing photo files. All of the files types supported can be seen in the pop-up window.

I lost a couple of injectors far from home and working 7-12's on turnarounds. I had my heads and parts shipped to me. I hope someone can come up with ideas how this has happened. Obviously the coolant is going somewhere but the ground at a rapid rate.

What color was the smoke... if coolant is not hitting the ground. .. not in the oil.. it has to be burning it.

Aaron, it looked white to me. Oil usually burns blue, fuel black and steam is white. I vote white.
