06 6.0L Blowing Grey Smoke at standstill

Recently replaced EGR cooler, cleaned EGR valve and replaced #1,3,5,7 injectors. Dealer replaced #2,4,6,8 injectors a month prior. After all said and done truck runs great, but if you let it idel it will blow grey smoke and smell of motor oil. If you really wind it up on the road and stop at a light, smoke is very thick and smells rich of oil. It is using about a quart of oil every two days. Any suggestions? I am thinking either bad turbo or oil cooler? Thanks
