Tell me what you think

Ford 6.0 White Smoke - YouTube
That is the link to my truck smoking. I really am not sure where the white smoke is coming from. The reason there is no whistle is because this is a non vgt turbo. I just had new head gaskets installed 100 miles ago. The injectors got reworked by Warren diesel. My fuel pressure is 64 psi, my ficm is 48v lowest it gets is 47.5. The egr has been deleted. What could be causing this?

The truck runs very strong, it will break tracktion at 45 mph if i stomp it. It seems very responsive and has plenty of power. The smoke really annoys me and I hate seeing it there. I would really like to find a way to clear it up some. Thanks

Was this on cold start up? Does it smoke even after warmed-up? Are you losing (level dropping) coolant from the degas bottle?

it was on a cold start up, it takes 15-25 minutes for it to clear up. I will have to monitor the coolant over the next few days. If it is coolant what would be the cause?

What was the temperature outside at time of startup? How cold did it get the night before? I don't have a 6.0, but it was 17 degrees here this morning and my 7.3 blew greyish smoke until it warmed up. Normal when it gets cold out. I'm guess that is what is going on for you as well.

my truck hazes at cold idle regardless of outside temp. I don't know why but it bothers me too. I know it's injector related but it may be impossible to know which one

It's normal.... If I pull the pigtail off of my VGT turbo when idling it will do the same thing. I also have 175's I don't know what you have on yours. But this is normal. Even at idle if the turbo isn't spooling a little bit even the .4 psi to 2 psi at idle than it won't have enough air to clean up the smoke with larger injectors and a big tune.

Perfectly normal...White smoke is normal on cold starts.....But white smoke in a warmed-up diesel is not... and nearly always ties to excess moisture. And would be from an internal source like the cooling system. If you where to notice a regular drop in the coolant level, you would likely have a head gasket/oil cooler/EGR problem.....But if it only does it on cold starts, your good.... let her warm up before you rip it up...haha

If you have fuel in coolant you don't have bad head gaskets you have a cracked head.
