White smoke and heavy exhaust

Morning everyone. I have a 97 f350, 7.3 with 248k mi. Especially on cold mornings the trick starts up just fine but leaves a white cloud of smoke and a heavy smell of exhaust that gets into the garage. I have only driven egr and scr diesels on the past so I'm not sure if this is just normal for pre egr motors. Engine has rosewood stage 1 injectors with upgraded ats pedestal with an adjustable Wastegate if that helps any. Thanks in advance

This is normal for cold weather starting. Just idle the truck out of the garage. Plug in the block heater at night or set it on a timer about 3 hours before you plan on driving it.

Read the third sticky post down. It may help
