Xtreme steet and cold starts

It's getting colder in the mornings and I've been noticing a lot of white smoke when I first start my truck running xtreme street. Is this normal? The truck runs fine. It just billows smoke for a few seconds when I start it.

I used to have cold fix tunes when I ran DJ's stuff, but I never seemed to really need them.

I had it for a whole winter once. Went away after a few minutes. Dealership replaced my EGR cooler this summer though.

Looking to buy again

white smoke is caused by un burned wax parifins in the fuel only happens on real cold start.

I'm running xtreme street and it's getting cold here as well. Below are pictures and videos of the smoke I'm getting. If anyone could confirm that this is what they are seeing in theirs and that it's a fuel/cold problem I would appreciate it.

Here are the pictures and videos I took (need quicktime to play the videos).

Hopefully with these pics and vids someone can give us some more suggestions of what may be wrong.

Thanks in advance!

That's what mine did until I took it in for the "cold start" flash, no more problems.
