the ice pick trick is for when your #2 or #7 inj harness goes bad. if that happens, you will know it. If it runs, it will only be on 4 cyl. The 'ice pick fix' is when you jam a punch or pick into the plug to make it gain contact again.

Not sure what your white smoke could be. Losing any coolant?

Mine smokes blue when cold. Below 25* cold. Once it warms up and rings seat, it's fine. When diesels are cold it's normal to have some colored exhaust fumes.

Just a dumb thought, If your new exhaust has a oilly film or some type of protective coating on it from the manfacturer it might smoke a little or smell funny until the it burns off.

get rid of the edge and get real tuning.. and if you smell diesel in the oil you might have a injector starting to go...
