Smoke coming out of intake

I purchased this truck about a month ago and what a nightmare. I have replaced the transmission, IDM computer and now that the computer is working I have smoke coming out of the intake, along with tons of smoke coming out of the exhaust. Come to find out the truck was flooded and the dealer never told me. This is a legal matter I am persuing via a lawyer. My question is do I need a new engine? What could be wrong and how much would it cost to fix? Can the engine be rebuilt? What would that cost? etc.

The first thing i would do is get a sample of that crank case oil and send it to Blackstone Labs for a test. Get on there webpage and you can request some free sample bottles. It cost 20 bucks and will tell you ALOT of information about whats going on inside the engine. I get test done regularly there.
