Re: 2003 Ex 6.0 Smoke from engine
the smoke issue was only one time? as far as the long start that is not alarming as long it was just the initial start, starts ok now? does it have any driveabilty issues? You should not have had a "bunch" of smoke in the turbo area. What kind of egr
delete? blanking discs? The clamps should seal pretty good even if they are under tightned, so unless they are very loose dont try to try an tighten your way out of big leak. Your misalignment theory sounds most likely. look at some utube's for clamp tightening (or turbo install).
