i believe there is nothing a person can do about it - statement based on my experience with my 159, 2,4jtdm tuned to 240bhp. i've done the following: replaced glow plugs, tried bg244 diesel treatment, had my intake cleaned completely, egr blinded and deleted, dpf removed, downpipe instead of first catalytic converter, all injectors checked and cleaned, one needed repair tho. i had compression measurement done and it is ok. not perfect, but quite good with difference of 2,5bar between the best and the worst cylinder. also turbo disassembled and cleaned... there is just nothing left to try anymore and problem is still there. either i have to buy new engine, or live with it. engine is in superb state so i've decided just to live with this.
however, i am fully open to any suggestions or stuff we might overlooked...
wish you luck, man. you will need it if you set yourself on a quest to remove cold start up smoke.
