Smoke at Idle

My '06 F350 crewcab dually has 38,000 miles and has begun to smoke white at idle (when in gear) or when backing. Regular idle does not produce any smoke. When I wait at a stoplight smoke gets thicker and thicker as I wait. It is stock except for a superchips performance flash and a Banks 5" turbo back with cat delete. It has just stated smoking more and more. Superchips says that it is a bad turbo and nothing to do with the programmer. Ford says nothing is wrong. I still have plenty of power and still getting 16.5mpg (17.5 on the lie o meter). What is wrong????????

I would suspect the turbo and how did ford come to conclusion that nothing is wrong? Did the tech or s/a tell you what tests they run?

Not losing any coolant. Will return truck to stock program and take truck back to Ford. Did not say what test tests they ran.

They need to prove your mods did the damage. I am new to ford diesels however not new to diesels in general. If it was a duramax I would defiantly point my finger at an injector but since some others are saying turbo this is best place to start. BTW look for a new dealer that isn't so uptight about mods.

I had/have (off and on) and the same problem with my 06 f250. I lost coolant once and took it to the Ford Dealer and they just told me the cap was bad and they replaced it. Now recently it started again? Any clues as to why the white smoke comes and goes?
