PPE xcelerator/smoke switch help!!

i have an 06 with a PPE xcelerator on level 7. very pleased with the power and quality of the shifts. the only thing that puzzles me is that in nuetral or park when you rev it it will not blow any smoke.. i installed a smoke switch(spliced blue wire) and when i turn it on it disengages the vanes on the turbo but no smoke will come out. is this PPE's programming or is this my truck???

someone please help!

I don't think you're going to get much smoke with 0 load on the engine. Have the smoke switch on and leave it in drive when you gas it.

And this is a bad thing because?

Be prepared for a lot of negative replies if you're just trying to make smoke for the sake of making smoke.

Now that you included that, I agree that it is the PPE causing it.
