If you look on the passenger side of the turbo there is a plug running off of it with two wires. You can tap into one of those wires (I really don't think it matters which one), cut that wire and run them to a switch, then the switch turns the turbo on and off. Im not good at explaining how to do things so I found this video on youtube for ya, its kind of a crappy video but it gets the point across.

smoke switch =

Who do you have tunes from now? I would try some different custom tunes, maybe one with early TC lockup, that way it'll feel faster. Otherwise you could look at a tuned FICM.

Haha I think the smoke switch is fine as long as people know when to use it, there is defiantly a time and place for it. Like my signature says, its perfect for that one person who wants to ride your butt for no reason. But I am running just the hybrid race from spartan. It was floating around on the forum here for free so I gave it a whirl. I haven't bought any for my truck yet though. What do you suggest? How much would a tuned FICM give me? Noticeable difference?

There is definitely a time and place for everything

I have gearhead tunes for my DD and I reallly llike them. TSD's Super Panty Dropper has been getting great reviews as well. There is also Innovative Diesel who has good tunes, and of course Vivian at Quick Tricks with the best customer service in the world. Take your pick.
