White smoke after egr delete

I have a decent amount of white smoke coming from my tailpipe ever since I deleted my egr. It is worse when the engine is cold. Doesn't smell like antifreeze. My buddy thought it might just be the intake getting cleaned out? It's been about 2 weeks since I had it done. Any input would be awesome.
Thanks!

In the 2 weeks have you lost any coolant. I'd go in and double check all your connections for starters.

06 F-250 6.0 (general nightmare) 2.5 pulling truck

Gotta pay to play son!

Hmmm... sure it's white and not gray? Coolant loss? Any codes? How does it run?

Not losing coolant, at least not enough to notice. It's running great. I think it looks pretty white, my buddy thought grey lol.

possible glow plug or injector issues. If there are no codes, them the glow plugs are probably fine.

Could a turbo seal cause that? We had issues with getting one of the clamps back on and at first I was getting 0 pressure

Usually you would see blue smoke (oil) if the turbo seal is letting go.

I had a buddy that had white smoke and it was his turbo seal. I'll sell my stock turbo maybe if interested has no problems 100k miles on it, never installed a programer on the truck. I'm waiting to go with a stage 3
