Unhappy 6.4 white smoke HELP!!!!

My brother's was driving his truck and went for a little fun run against a duramax and as he pulled away, white smoke started coming out pretty steadily, then he pulled over and slowed down the truck now has a rough idle and white smoke all the time. We scanned it with his Minimaxx and its throwing;
*P0284 Contribution/Balance
*P0308 Cylinder 8 missfire
No cel on the gauges but definitely cannot be driven, I have 2 videos of the motor at idle, and the white smoke coming from the exhaust as well as a couple pics showing oil in intake tube and inlet of turbo and oil that is on the truck underneath/around the motor. I need help diagnosing this cause we have found anything from cracked pistons to injectors etc..
It is a 2008 f250 6.4 with dpf & egr delete with a Minimaxx and 4'' exhaust any input is appreciated, thanks!!

UPDATE!
cleared codes and started truck for about 5 mins no white smoke, no cel. THEN cel came on and white smoke started pouring out exhaust again, spoke to Powerstroke Magic in houston and he said could be an injector then turbo seals....

does it smell like diesel fuel or oil? Looks like a hanging injector to me.

You sound like you have a cracked piston. Let me guess #8?

yup #8 was cracked, and the crankshaft was scarred on the journal. So had to replace 1 piston, 1 rod and new crank. finally got it back after $5500 later. crank alone was 1200 from ford house

I have one down with #8 as well cracked. Crank is fine ,my cylinder did did score my block a bit. Taking it to the machine shop today. What is causing the # 8 cylinder to crack on these motors? I'm thinking of changing all the pistons since it's down .

I would assume #8 is the most air-starved cylinder so it sees the highest EGT
