Question about cold start smoke
I've noticed that the past few times I've started my truck after sitting more than 24 hours, it smokes white/greyish smoke at first. If I burp the throttle, it goes to black (Looney Tune) but immediately turns white/greyish again. EGR is deleted, and the truck isn't puking a bit, just barely over 100 miles on a fresh set of OEM head gaskets and studs. The only concern I have is when I installed the injectors, I just torqued them down to 31 ft/lbs and didn't 'tap' them in place like some do. The injectors are the original ones that came out, but I did put new o-rings and copper washers on each one.
Once the truck warms up, the smoke does go away. So maybe it's normal?
