Smoke Smoke Smoke.....

Ok, so my truck has always had some smoking when cold, white to grey in color. I then had some bodywork done on it, where it sat for 5-6 weeks and when I got it back it now smokes like crazy. It does not smoke when started cold at all, then after about two minutes of warming up it starts pouring out smoke. It does this until the temp gauge starts to move, then it smokes when I accelerate from a stop or let off the gas and get back into it even after fully warmed up. After it is warm the amount of smoke is fairly light but still present.Mods to the truck are, EGR delete, Headstuds, intake, full catless exhaust...Batteries were put in new 8/13Anything helps, and there are no codes... Thanks

What year is your truck and what color is the smoke now? Also does it smell like diesel or coolant?

Need to find out if it's coolant or fuel. Does the smoke hang low coming out of exhaust or float up?
