Is it running fine? Never seen one smoke while running becasue of the carb itself. Firing order messed up? Alot of oil blowby?

Nope. She runs fine. Its the carb smoking itself. the truck don't smoke. Just the carb.

My ford ranger 2004 model, on idling its producing a smoke and the its itching on eyes. but when it reaches on 50 to 60m rps tghe smoke stops and it runs very smoothly and when acceralenting the turbo produces a a wistle sound. How can i solve this problem?

The turbo is supposed to make that whistle, its called "Spool up." And the reason you have the smoke while its idling is more than likely because of the TURBO itself. Or when you start it, and let it idle, its more than likely because the oil splasher has left oil on the cylinder walls. causing it to blow a little blue. And oil takes a while to burn off.
