Long term effects of smoking?

Are there any negative long term effects from smoking your truck too much?

Ever since i got the SCT, I have been heavy on the gas and puffing lots of black smoke. Wanted to see if there were any negative affects to it.

SCT + gauges ... EGR to be deleted in the near future, but I think it is turned off in the tune.

Do you mean the black puff you get with a tune before you build boost? e.g. when you 1st smash the gas?

Yes, I was wondering if over time the soot or what ever would cause damage to say the EGR (prior to delete or for someone who wasn't planning on deleting) or to the turbo.

Well, a smoke switch is hard on the turbo. I dont see why loading it now and then before you build boost can hurt anything. I do anytime someone rides my ***.

Sorry not sure I understand the above post. You're referring to an actual switch that you add to increase smoke is hard on the turbo, but saying that just hitting the gas to cause the puff isn't?

My bad, yes there is a swich you can add to just puff smoke. Bad idea I think. But when you are just smashing the throttle, I dont see a huge issue with it.

Maybe a deisel tech can talk to this point better than me? Im just a Ford FE guy starting to play with these diesels!
