Smoky box?

What does white smoke coming from the air box after the truck is shut down mean?

Before the turbo and after the air box is the crank case vent. It normally is sucked into the motor, but it's just going backwards cause there's no suction

My Samsung SGH-I997 made me send this.

I've got it narrowed down to a burnt valve or a leaky injector. I know I can do a compression check to test the valves, but how can I test for leaky injectors?

Why do you think it's that? Excessive blow by?
