could a stuck/clogged ebpv cause excessive white smoke during a cold start up or do I need to look somewhere else? Vehicle in question got a new #8 injector by another shop and was then brought to us when it didn't fix it. Compression was 320 at #8 and the o-rings on the injector were not torn but felt hard, cup appeared to be fine did feel a crack or anything and not sure if it is new or not.

If you found one bad plug, there's bound to be others. Replace them all...

There just might be more started it today at 40 dergress and still smoked.
Driver side had the lowest resistance at 1 ohm when tested. Passenger side was at 1.3 ohm

White smoke = fuel starvation/cavitation. No fuel leaks? A cracked injector cup would fill the degas bottle with diesel, quite noticeable. I'd replace all 8 glow plugs AND relay AND check all UVCH connections before getting too far. Glow plugs should read as an open circuit when you check with a DVOM if they're good (no to little resistance)

All glow plugs check out fine. Turns out the "new" injector in #8 was the culprit.
