White Smoke after Exhaust Installed???

I installed a 5" Magnaflow Exhaust on my Truck 2 weeks ago and deleted the Meeowww, ever since been noticing white smoke coming out of the tail pipe, mainly when warming up bit still some occasionally here and there. Prior to install, never noticed a hint of white smoke. Exhaust emits a funky smell that doesn't quite smell like the diesel i've been accustomed to smelling. Hoping it has something to do with a drop in back pressure affecting the computer inability to adjust. Picking up a 6-Gun, any possibility this may help to cure the computer not being able to adjust if this is the problem? I appreciate your input....Mahalo

The kitty may have been masking your truck burning coolant at startup. Do you have the inductive heat flash reprogramming for your FICM? Pull the EGR valve (two 8mm bolts, located in front of top oil filter) to see if there is any wetness which would be caused by coolant.
