These trucks smoke after they are tuned, at least mine always has. Not sure if yours has a problem or not though, any codes in the system?

Took it to a local shop today and he thinks it has excessive blow bye. He thinks I could have bad rings. Truck has 80,000 miles and runs like a bat outta hell! The smoke is actually grey and smells like burning oil. He pulled the cap of the oil fill canister and there was enough air coming out to make the cap kinda float a little.
You know I just put a FS2500 bypass oil filter system on it and it dumps the oil back in through the canister. He said it was not a very place to dump the oil back in because it could suck some of it back through the intake. I did disconnect the bypass filter to see what happens (if it stops smoking)but he said the intercooler definetly has oil in it. When i think about it it did start around that time i installed the filter. You have any thoughts?

OK guys, I changed my Royal Purple oil and put in Delo as well as disconnected the FS2500 Byepass oil filter. No Joke....No more burning oil! The Excessive blow bye is not even close to being the same. Crazy! but it is all true! Motor also sounds smoother, not as loud. I thought i was going to spend over $8,000 in repairs and instead, i changed my oil.
