BEST TUNE FOR -4F WEATHER

Up until yesterday i have had extreme street loaded and thought i would switch it to my canned 65 hp tow tune due to the fact that its been really cold up here in Ontario , Canada and on extreme street the truck seemed to smoke alot when starting in the morning . this morning when i started it on the tow file it smoked for a min but stopped alot quicker . i really dont like using the canned tunes but i also dont know if running the extreme street in such cold weather is bad for the truck . if anyone has any input or similar issues your help is appreciated .

Sorry bud. For me, cold is anything below 70*... When it has gotten colder, I have actually switched to lower HP tunes just for the simple fact that it generates less unburnt fuel until the engine gets up to operating temperature. It's likely that is exactly what you are seeing out the tailpipe.
