Few (fuel?) issues .. Help!!

Got a 97 7.3l awhile back.
It POURS white smoke as you are cranking to start.
Much more so on cold days.
Warm days it may just start first crank.
(I live in TX so it's pretty warm)
Dosent seem to have power.

One thing indefinitely noticed is when I was cranking it off the
solenoid, I could see the pre-start white smoke
seeping out from the connections to the turbo housing..
Assuming this is supposed to be air tight?

Anyway.. Once it's running, no smoke at all EVER.
Turbo boost at like 2500rpm


Manual trans.
273k.


I'm thinking lazy glow plugs?
Or that relay?
Idk
Help!
