Injector, leaking cooler???

Ok I have a 4 inch turbo back. I had my ficm fixed along with atlas 40 tune. Well I noticed when taking off sometimes a puff of bluish blackish smoke which I was told is normal. But it seems to be getting worse. Sitting at a light the other night I looked in mirror and saw smoke I think blue coming out of pipe. Take off it clears up. Sometimes it will blow bluish smoke a lot sometimes never. When it was smoking the other night I pulled into where I was going and no smoke. Could I have an injector on its way out. Or is egr valve sticking open, or cooler leaking. I have read here that coolant and soot can make bluish smoke. Also I have not seen any coolant loss. I have ordered and egr delete. Also I checked oil change in 1500 miles ago and still on same spot on stick. At idle i occasionally get a small surge like 50rpms, but its very random, did it two days ago and nothing since. Thoughts anyone.

Re: Injector, leaking cooler???

I could be wrong, but I think excess fuel causes blue smoke. How long ago did you have ficm repaired? Have you tried any fuel treatments yet?

Fixed two months ago all numbers are fine with it. I did add atlas 40 which prob adds some fuel. So maybe I have an injector crapping slowly. Yes rev x fuel and diesl power nothing different. Great milage and smooth running as well.
