01' smoking in idle?

When I start my 01 7.3 cold, it takes the glow plugs around 12 seconds to warm up. After that, it emits blue/gray smoke for several minutes at quite an impressive pace from the exhaust. After that, it mostly goes away. Anyone ever deal with this?

Burning some oil.... hows your turbo look? Sometimes if an oil seal is leaking in the turbo it can end up in the motor.

I will check that. Is it easy to get apart? I have been seeing some people saying it could be a bad injector? I was having and still have very seldom an issue with the truck stalling and the wait to start and water in fuel lights coming on. It would stall and then after depressing the throttle and stepping on it again, it would start right in again. Replaced the CPS and this fixed it for the most part, except for some intermittent misses. Any ideas?
