hope they figure it out. sounds like a timing issue but if they tweaked the ecm who knows.
in my experience blue smoke usually indicates oil burning.

Yes, maybe a reflash on ecm could help

Blue smoke is oil, black smoke is fuel. I would go right to the butterfly valves in the top of the heads. If the butterfly valves are not working properly you will get more oil then normal flowing into the intake. The butterfly valves are a part of the crankcase breather system.
