I recently blocked my EGR and installed finger stick. The truck runs better then it did before the mod. However, at idle I have alot of white smoke coming from the tail pipe and you can smell the burned fuel and/or oil. I only notice the smoke at idle, especially when I come to a stop, say after being on the freeway. The truck does not run bad, if fact it runs really good now, and I have no check engine lights. Is there a possible reason for this, maybe the ECM is adjusting ? I am ok with it smoking, just want to be sure nothing major is wrong. Thanks in advance for any help.

White smoke is usualy an injector.:( Do you have a tool to run the balance rates?

is the blocker and stick the only thing you just added? These symptoms are usually from removing the cat and not having blocker or stick installed. I see you have a cat delete pipe.. did it not smoke when you installed that before the blocker and stick??

As Rick said, if that isn't the case then its usually a sign of injectors

I did the CAT delete about 2 weeks ago. I didn't notice the smoke then, but it might take time to develope. If it is an injector problem are there other symptoms I should be looking for ? I don't currently have the tools or know how to run the balance, but if you point me in a direction where I can get the tools and directions I know my way around a car enough to get it done. Thanks.
