Blue smoke, no loss of power, 08 6.4

My 08 just started whitish/blue smoke and began to loose oil all of the sudden. Truck has been running great and then all of the sudden it began to smoke white when started. Still runs great.. After a day or so it began to smoke more at all times with diesel smell. Using a lot of oil. Like 2 quarts in 40 miles. I have no coolant loss. Truck is DPF deleted..egr is on truck, but using SCT tow tune. Truck still has great power, turbo boost is fine. Please see pic below to get a better idea. This is a pic of the passenger manifold to the turbo. Truck has 160,00 miles. Any ideas on where to start?

Is the down pipe also covered in oil? Inlet pipe to turbo saturated in oil suggests mechanical issue with a cylinder on that bank. If it was just down pipe that was soaked and not and up pipe I would say turbos but that does not seem like the case.

Are there any ports at the head/manifold that are soaked with oil?
