Alright, glad to hear you got it straightened out.

My 6.354s are the same, a little smoke at start up. They're on the low end of the compression range for a diesel anyway and with wear and time that doesn't help. Had my injectors rebuilt and it didn't go away.

They will also produce visible white exhaust vapor from time to time at cruise, but seems to be more of an atmospheric condition, temperature/humidity level, than anything going on with the engines. Usually it's early in the morning or just before sundown.

Thanks for the update.
