Blue Smoke

Help please!!! I have a 2088 6.4 with 153K miles. It has been serviced perfect all its life. At 142K the front seal starting leaking. Dealer replace it no problem. At 146K high pressure fuel pump went out. Dealer replaced no problem. At 151K turbo went out. Dealer replaced - lots of problems since. I am seeing a lot of blue smoke during normal driving conditions. Not all the time, it comes and goes with no warning. Dealer replaced Charged Air Cooler next no change. When its smoking you can hardly breath in the truck the smell is so strong. It's like the exhaust is really hot. I'm not a Diesel Mechanic so I'm lost. Also when the smoking starts the truck goes down on power and it appears that the high pressure fuel pump is working very hard. Lots of rattling from the motor. One other thing the turbo seems to dump really hard when letting of the throttle when the smoke is happening. Any ideas on what could be going on. the truck is completely stock. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

No I don't have the DPF deleted. The truck is bone stock. Can't get the issue's corrected enough to make any mods. Smoke has settled down to almost nothing now but the smell still comes and goes. Fuel mileage is up to 13.8 from 12.3 before all the work was completed. I have had several friends ride with me and some have suggested that I might have an injector sticking but every time the dealer has it, it want act up. Sometimes I can drive hundreds of miles before it will act up. It does seems to be getting better and the frequency of the problem getting less. I guess all I can do is drive it until it gets worse or quits. Thanks for the tip..
