Help with white smoke

Here lately I've noticed if I get on the accelerator anything over half throttle my boost will go to 35 psi and white smoke will be coming out of the exhaust pipe and the truck will run terrible. This happens for about 10 seconds and clears up and all is back to normal. This happens about once or twice a week. Any ideas on what it could be? Truck is a 2008 deleted and Spartan tuned. All fuel filters have been changed every 2 oil changes. Oil and coolant levels are near perfect

Re: Help with white smoke

Are you sure it's white? White is only one thing and that's coolant going through the motor. But Grey is a bad fuel to air mixture more times then not

Re: Help with white smoke

How often does it get driven? Drain off the water separator?

Re: Help with white smoke

Smoke is turbo controlled,,pretty much? White not real good. I get white smoke at an idol, but my ccv reroute has caused that. I'm pretty sure.. Never did it before. Watch your EBP, see if is relative to the boost.. The EBP sensor Can? cause some dumb stuff... Just something else to look at.. Cause white is not good.
