white smoke at startup/guage reading rich

Well i went to look at a 99 crew cab powerstroke today and absolutely loved everything about it, it ran perfect and looked great and a good price. Only problem was on cold startup for the first couple minutes it put out quite a bit of smoke that smelt like unburnt fuel, also the aftermarket guage in the cab was reading all the way to the rich side on air/fuel ratio. Truck is straight piped and has a chip of some sort is this whats causing the smoke and should i be concerned?

It the price is right sounds like a good truck then. Might have bad gps or gp relay for white smoke reason. But a 99 with only 130k would be nice.

ya i really love the truck the price is right, and since it only has 130k and only did it when cold i figured it wasnt a big deal i need to find out what kind of chip is in it that could be making it rich

also im pretty sure its an early 99, however it has a few things done to it and im not sure what so im guessing that will make up for the lower power of the e99 turbo and injectors. besides the injectors being louder and a lil less power, will an e99 have any more problems than a 99.5-03? all i really care about is reliablity i dont tow or anything.
