White smoke at idle

Hey guys just bought my first OBS and I love it! Mods done are BTS tranns and HPOPs, Hypermax turbo and stage 2 injectors, FASS fuel pump, DP tuner, ARP head studs and BANKS intercooler. ITs not a lot, but it deffinately it pushing out a fair amount of white smoke at idle. So is this a bad thing or it that just because of the injectors and whatnot? Im thinking maybe its because he has a K&N style intake which will soon be changed out for a 6637. Idk just curious if its something that needs to be investigated. Thanks!

White smoke is either coolant or raw fuel. The k&n is not gonna make it smoke white. And I know what your thinking its could've dusted the turbo I don't buy it I've been running k&n on several vehicles for many thousands of miles and never damaged a turbo. If turbo was dusted it shouldn't smoke at tilde because your not building any boost it would be up in rpm where you would notice turbo problems

White smoke is anti freeze and smells kinda sweet maple syrup like. White/greyish smoke that smells like fuel is oil burning, black smoke is raw fuel.

Is your oil level or coolant tank going down over shorter periods of time? Is this happening only at startup cold or all the time? Need some more details to help u out.

I have a 2006 6.0l that smokes heavy until warm then no smoke . It's heaviest at idle and when you accelerate. It also jumps around sometimes at idle. Has all new injectors, high pressure oil pump, egr delete done and no programmer. It does use oil and has 199,000 miles. It doesn't use any coolant. I just pulled a large boat back from miami and nothing changed under stress. I'm so confused. No codes. Please help!!!

Gavol,

I suggest go through your Glow plug system and add some RevX. Also, 6.0 injectors like synthetic much better if your not using it already.

Since its all the time that pretty much rules out GP system. As you turn up the tuner I am going to say its oil burning. As your tune requires higher oil pressure it is probably leaking more past the O-rings. Typically its the outer O-rings but it is possible the inner O-rings are leaking too. Outer O-rings can be an easy DIY job if your mechanically inclined wrenching on cars, if its internal (not as common) then they pretty much need rebuilt or buy a new one.

When you get back have a buzz test and Cylinder Contribution Test done. That will lead you to the culprit without having to do them all.
