-20 celcius and white smoke ??????

hey, right now its -20 with the windchill and when i first start my truck it blows white smoke from exhaust and continues for a while down the road until it heats up real good , i'm not losing coolant and truck runs great otherwise. just wondering if this is normal with a diesel in real cold weather or do i have a huge problem . thanx a bunch for all your input in advance . i should also tell you that i'm running erics extreme street and until yesterday i had my egr valve unplugged but found out it was off in erics tune anyway so plugged it back in .

Yeah itll blow white smoke for a little bit when it starts up. When I go to start my truck today. Its -12C here today and Ill probably just let mine sit for about 15 minutes and idle before I try to go. Mine normally smokes for a 1 or 2 minutes.

that is the usual condensation burn off from the pipes cooling then reheating rapidly... if you are losing coolant it would more of a milky white smoke.. if the egr cooler was leaking
