2001 7.3 still smoking and oil in exhaust after new turbo

Hey guys so 4 weeks ago my stock turbo was completely shot and pouring white smoke and oil out the exhaust. I installed a new blank pedestal and gtp38r. New gaskets were used and there is no oil leaking from the pedestal or turbo from what I can see.

I figured whatever residual oil from the blown stocker would be gone by now but the truck still smokes white under acceleration but not at idle. I even flushed the exhaust out with degreaser from the down pipe until nothing but clean mix of water/degreaser came out. I cleaned out the cac pipes and replaced all the boots with a new set from riffraff.

The truck runs good and does not miss even at idle. It may have a slight knock at low rpm if anything when cold but It's barely noticeable. Maybe I'm hearing things.

Egts are under 300 at idle and between 6-7 at hwy speeds
Truck holds 27-28psi from the new turbo.
Mods are s&b Intake, 38R, cfm intake manifold, DP tuner, 4" turbo back exhaust.
Oil remains clean and so is the coolant. In 2 weeks the oil is still right on level.
Why is my truck still smoking white/grey and oil in the exhaust pipe?
Is my intercooler possibly full of oil? Can it be flushed without removing it?
Other than that I'm out of ideas and don't want anything else to happen if I keep driving it.
I'm in jacksonville NC if anyone is local and would possibly check it out in person to shed some light on the situation. The closest shop is 4 hours away and I'm not taking it to the stealership.

Thanks fellas

Greenman yes it does have a ccv mod.

If I have a cracked piston wouldn't the truck idle hard and run crappy? I'm just preparing myself for the worst.

Alright well I feel stupid now for overlooking this one. Going over everything I can think of again today and the ccv mod/tank was so full of oil,the turbo was sucking it in. It was full all the way up about halfway up the breather to the turbo. I guess the blown stock unit helped fill it up rather quickly. Removed the catch tank cleaned the lines and just vented it into the atmosphere. Ran it down the hwy and all seems good now.

No blue/white smoke anymore and runs a lil smoother!
