lots... LOTS of fuel smoke

Hey all..
so, when i got my car back after a 3 year holiday, it hasn't been running well...
it stopped starting, so i decided to chagne the injectors.

started and ran it with the 440's on the stock tune, very smokey.

updated injectors to 440 via nistune, and same thing, it is VERY smokey.

what else could it be? fuel may also be a bit questionable though.

unfortunatly, except for revving it, i can't load it up, as it isn't very roadworthy at the moment.

If it's not smokey due to fuel, my money will be on blown turbo/turbo seal, will smoke like all fkuc on idle but not so much under load, then when your at the lights or not underload itll smoke again, and boat loads!
