pull the intake horn off...and check the turbo wheel for play...push in and pul out on the shaft and see if it moves.....a little up and down is normal...but there should be NO in and out...

Check the motor closely for oil leaks...

you could also need injector o rings..

how many miles are on this truck, makes a big difference ,if you are smeeling oil, it will be an external leak, if it were o-rings for you to be able to smell oil you would also see smoke from tailpipe, which would tell me more of a turbo issue , even though turbos dot give alot of problems unless you have been puling heavy loads ad getting it hot , if its a stock truck turbo should be fine but as marc said good to at least check

a little cold start smoke doesnt bother me , and with that mileage i wouldnt even think injector o-rings with that mileage , you cant really comare exhaust smell fom one truck to the other , thats not really a good comparison,make sure you dont have any external leaks , and make sure truck service is up to par
