Blowing white smoke on take off, smells like burnt oil
First time posting so bare with me. I have a 05 F250 6.0, getting ready to put on egr delete but other then that no mods. 190k all stock. I have noticed that just on take off from stop lights ect. it has been blowing a good amount of white smoke. It isn't blue and it lingers for awhile. Smells like burnt oil. Took the turbo off and there was oil around the exhaust clamp and also it appears to have some oil on the exhaust tip or it looks wet anyways. The turbo shaft spins freely and there really isn't any play in it, just appears to be leaking. Coolant levels are normal and it doesn't smell like anti freeze at all. I was looking for input maybe a seal in the turbo is going out causing oil to leak to the exhaust? I wanted to get as much info as possible before having the turbo rebuilt unless there is anything else that could be doing this.
