Blue smoke on start up and until it gets warm

Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone knows what could be causing blue smoke until warm on my '06 6.0 it only has 38000 miles on it?

I have been reading that it might be either the turbo seals or maybe an injector. If it is either of these how do I go about diagnosing it short of pulling the turbo off?

It does seem to be using a little oil.

Could also be your crankcase venting. Oil will collect in your CAC tubes and intercooler and it will burn this off until its all clear. You could do the CCV mod and that may solve your problem.

Is it hunting season yet??
