White smoke from exhaust

I have a 2001 Jetta gls 1.8t and when I bought it it had no intercooler I bought the intercooler and put it on and it started smoking white from exhaust and had a bad boost leak so I did some research and learned my seals in my turbo were bad so I bought a used turbo that was in great working order and i just put it on and it still smokes white from the exhaust but it doesn’t have a blown head gasket I know for sure because the oil was fine when I drained it and it was fine when I did an oil change not even 100 miles ago. Does anybody have any ideas? Thanks

Is it smoking all the time or just on the over run?. Generally if it smokes on the over run it can be attributed to valve stem seal problems. A faulty EGR might produce your symptoms. Try not to run too long in this condition as you might wreck the oxygen sensor.
