White/blue smoke problem

Hey Guys,
Lately my truck has been smoking heavily when the engine is cold, mostly in the morning for the first 30 mins. After that it still smokes but not quit as much? Seems to be the worst when im stopped at idle. Any ideas?

I had an issue like this. White smoke being head gaskets. Still got puffs of blue till I swapped out the turbo. Good Luck!!

Oh yeah, I returned it back to stock 3 days ago. I also put the cat back on for good measure.

GOOD IDEA!! Run as many miles stock as possible. Soot them cylinders up good. A hot tune will leave a star pattern on pistons from injectors. I hear FOMOCO has a way of looking into history of flashes made. Wish Ya Best Bro!!
