White Smoke at idle

Well this is my first post on the boards...lots of good info.

I have a 06 f250 with 35k on it no warranty.
Mods are sct Innovative tunes egr turned off
4in turbo back no cat
K&N fipk
cfm+ intake elbow
egr cooler delete with up pipe fix
ARP Head studs with new gaskets just installed
And of course gauges to monitor it all

Well to start i just did most of the mods cause of coolant loss and a overflowing of the degass bottle so i did the egr cooler delete and head studs along with the 4" and had all kinds of valve train problems for some reason. We went thru 2 push rods and 3 or 4 rocker arms before we got it all lined out.. and now the dang thing is blowing white smoke at idle any ideas???

Nobody has any ideas even??? The valve train problem was just a problem with the install the first time and it took us a couple of tear downs to get it all lined out. The truck still smokes white at idle very little and even can see it turning the coal roll a little gray??? any ideas

I did change the tune from IDP xtreme street to xtreme race not sure if this could effect it or not but IDP is closed for a while and cant get ahold of them. I have ordered several tuners from them and was thinking maybe its a possiblility that they sent me a tune for the wrong stradegy being that they just looked it up i didnt give it to them again (but would it even run?)

Sounds like coolant getting in the engine some how. Either through the egr cooler or a blown head gasket.
