Help!! Truck broke down

My DD was driving my truck not beating on it or anything and we hit a hill and the truck started to shutter. Looked back and there was whiteish gray smoke. Pulled over and shut it down. Temps were fine. It smelled like burnt oil. When we pulled it up the ramp onto the trailer some oil was dripping out of the exhaust. Im thinking turbos. I pulled the intake off and the one compressor wheel was fine but thats all I could see. Ive snapped shafts on my turbo in my 6.0L and it did the same thing but I dont think it had the shutter. What do you guys think? Anything else you guys can think of? Thanks Ryan. Sorry for the length.

When I had white smoke and oil come out of my exhaust, it was a fuel injector that hung open, filled the crank case with fuel, and my truck ran away. Not saying this is the case here, but it definitely could be injector related. I would be surprised if one of the turbo's is bad, but it very well could be.

When you pulled the intake off, was it full of oil? If your crankcase gets overfull it fills the intake tube from the CCV. Check your oil level, and see if your turbo actuator moves. I've only seen one turbo act up on the 6.4. If you have the BOV set up right you don't have to worry about the turbo shaft.

Why would it put oil into my exhaust if it was an injector?
No oil in the intake tube other than what the ccv normally puts out. I will have to take it apart in the morning when I get back up north. Would the actuator not moving screw something up?
