Would a bad crush washer or cup cause the issues I was having ?
Sounds like you may have a cracked injector cup, possibly combined with an improperly torqued injector hold-down. White smoke could be coolant, especially on startup. Any sign of fuel floating in your coolant tank?

Clean the injector bores, then pressurize the coolant system to look for cracked cups.

I doubt the crush washer itself would be the problem, unless there was a serious gouge across it that prevented it from sealing.

The crush washer actually did have a bad gouge like to the point if you run your finger across is it would probably cut you. but I’m definitely going to check the cup and the coolant for fuel my buddy who checked it out said he couldn’t smell coolant at all in the smoke just raw fuel.

Of course in the middle of all of this I traded my after market wheels/ spacers for 04 wheel and upon taking off the spacers I have 6 stripped lug studs on the front drivers side SMH.

Just checked the coolant doesn’t have any fuel I can’t smell a hint of diesel. So I guess that’s good

Tell me about it if I was at a tire shop or something they would have had me by the balls.

Just an update the injector shop went over and tested all of my injectors for about 45 mins a piece. They did notice on the injector that was burnt up on the tip had a cracked crush washer so I’m guessing that was the whole issue. Have to clean my cup when I get home to make sure it’s not cracked

Hey so I got my injectors back in and I’ve driven it about 5-8 miles but I have a check engine light... can this be caused by air in the injection system.

Not normally. You should check for codes. Could be a multitude of causes, since you had a bunch of stuff disconnected.
Air in the HP oil system is eliminated by taking it out and running the snot out of it for 20 minutes or so, including hard acceleration.
