Did you check the voltage on the FICM? The smoke could be a failed injector or o-ring but I'd go after the FICM voltage first.

Mine does the same thing. I have 3 glow plugs failing and it clears up after engine reaches operating temp. Does it clear up after engine gets warmed up? Have you checked for codes? I bet you have a few glow plugs out. Unless it does not clear up after 10min or so. Then it could be something else.
There are a couple of threads about the same topic I read this past weekend.

Once warm the problem does go away and it turns over much sooner and drives less rough. i haven't checked for codes. can my SCT do this?

Yes, Sct programmer will work.
if it were a injector or o ring the exhaust would smell like straight diesel. But you can always check your ficm too. I think you probably just have a few bad glow plugs or glow plug harness.

I've seen where the sct lacks in code reading.
