Probably cracked flex pipes going to the turbo, or a loose or broken turbo clamp.

I would also check the egr valve to see if it is damp when it is cold before start up, is it low on coolant.

looked into it further and the is quite a bit of soot around the base of the turbo as a light dusting on the FICM 3rd and 4th pic. also seen soming looked like it was wrapped in aluminum foil with some epoxy stuck on the end bellow the driver side of the turbo first pic, as well as some sort of brass plug with like a exhaust clap on the passenger side up pipe second pic.

Smoke issue

Im having the same problem but exhaust fumes are not that bad it will smoke for about to miles and stop but I can only see it when sitting still at a stop light. Just had a egr valve about 6 months ago and put a 4 inch straight pipe from turbo back now see this issue
