weird, i'd say low boost or low air flow. if it was white smoke i'd check your fuel pressure.

common rails and the multilayer gasket, have cause all kinds of weird screwups with the motor over the past couple years, so no not really surprising. they were getting to be too reliable there for a while ya know, so the epa hasta make em run like crap again, it looks like what i imagine the early 70's must have looked like to the muscle car era

Sounds like some dirty fuel had its way in there and messed up your injectors. They were probably sticking partially open hence the smoke. Check out my post titled dirty fuel and you will see how much crap can be in our fuel. I had an injector go out last year but I had the opposite problem one of mine was carboned up and not spraying enough fuel. Hope your cylinders didnt get washed and scorred otherwise you should be back on the road in no time. Good luck!
