Default White Smoke Rough Idle

I have a 2000 Ford F250 7.3l Powerstroke and just recently started smoking white at idle and under acceleration. Seems to smoke worse when sitting at a light and then starting to accelerate. Smells like fuel. Runs really rough until about 2000 RPM's then smooths out. I was thinking Fuel Injection Control Module but any help would be great.

Truck has a 5" BRP and I believe a single stage Hypertech (old sticker in door and seems to spool faster than normal)

You dont have a FICM...

You have a PCM, but that would not cause this issue.

Sounds like injector O rings or an injector issue.

I would first stop driving it, and then go ahead and replace the injector O rings.

Once that is done if the issue does not go away then go from there.

So got word back on the truck and it dropped a #4 injector. I was thinking upgrade injectors since I have to get in there to do 1. Is this a good idea and what would a good choice be. I will also be looking for turbo advice and a chip. Maybe not all at once since I am not that weathly but any info on which injector and turbo set up would be greatly appreciated.
