Sluggish for about 5-10 miles......Exhaust burns eyes

I've had my 6.0 for about a year now with zero issues so far. I have just under 120K on the clock and am wondering if it's normal for it to run sluggish for about 5-10 miles? I'm running rotella 5-40 synthetic and just changed the fuel filters. I'm also running sct tunes. To verify it isn't a bad tune I set it back to stock and it still ran sluggish. Also; she puffs white smoke for a few minutes when 1st started and the fumes burn your eyes.....Any suggestions?

I thinks all is normal, diesels like to be warmed up to perform and I also noticed a richer burn idling with my SCT

I think you're probably right but that doesn't go for all diesels. I just bought an 09 VW TDI Jetta and that thing purrs from the moment she springs to life.......

Do you have a good scan tool that can monitor live data??? If so check for codes, both foeo and koer. Watch the icp voltage and ipr %. Bust most importantly watch ficm_mpwr should be 46.5 to 49 volts. (spec is 48v) Also watch ficm_lpwr and ficm_vpwr. They should both be about charging system voltage. It does kinda sound like you have a failing injector or ficm. Also if you have a p0611 and or all 8 injector codes its almost a sure bet your ficm is toast.

Over my head here...What could I expect a shop to charge for diagnosis and repair?

We charge about an hour for most no start diagnostics. So id bet youd probly pay under 100 dollars.
