Exclamation Excessive grey smoke????

03' 6.0 no mods. Blowing excessive grey smoke all the time, even at idle. Alot more smoke when excelerating. Has oil in intercooler tubes both sides. No loss of power and it runs just fine. But there is way too much smoke. I checked the play on the turbo and it has just a little up and down movement. No warning lights on. Checked and cleaned the egr valve, all is fine. Would love any help or suggestions you guys could give!!! Thanks!

it does not seem to be losing coolant at all! Is the down pipe on the outlet side of the turbo? Thanks again guys for the responses.

It's going to have oil in it because the crank case vents into it..
