Do I have Oil in my Exhaust (PICS)

I was looking under the truck todaty and I noticed oil leaking from somewhere. It looks like its coming out of where the headers meet the block. Does this look right or whats wrong. I also added a picture of the exhaust which looks like its got oil in it.

Yeah but it hasn't gotten below 30 degrees yet. My last oil change was 3300 miles ago and I checked my oil leverl and it looked perfect still.

Just a very little bit of smoke but I think its because of the race tune. When I start the truck up cold it doesnt even make a diesel chatter noise. It almost sounds like a gas motor until the engine temps get in to the 70's. So I'm guessing the tune has it running fairly rich on fuel.

probably so... white smoke/unburnt fuel will cause exactly what you're seeing. it ends up looking like oil because the inside of the exhaust ports/pipe are coated with soot, so it looks like black oil leaking out. I wouldn't worry too much about it if everything is running well.

do you plug the truck in? do you let it idle to warm it up?

if it's just that one side, I'd agree. if it's both, it seems unlikely that all 8 ports would be evenly coated
