Smoke

I want more











that's a total lie.

So I'm anti smoke. Which is why I love Matt's Srl tune.

But here's my problem. I have so many other great tunes especially IDP tunes. That are awsome but smoke way to much. Mainly on the highway.(55 mph) Passing someone is borderline impossible without leaving a cloud.

It seems there is just no air down that low in the rpm range? I'm in no way bashing IDP or others. I understand high power tunes require fuel. Just looking for answers.

Is my turbo getting lazy at 130k? Batmowheel the answer? Ect...

Does this make any sense?

When was the last time you cleaned your turbo?

Cleaning your turbo would be a good idea for preventative maintenance regardless, however I doubt it will solve your smoke issue. It is all in the tune, my truck does the same thing. I would contact the tuner that wrote the tune you are unsatisfied with and tell them whats going on. They will be able to adjust some parameters such as low boost fueling that should help you out.

Yes, you should cleant he turbo, but it is all in the tuning. Matt is really good at writing low smoke tunes. Innovative can do it too, but you have to make it clear that that is what you want

Matt calls for fuel delivery in a different way than most other tuners thats why there is less smoke.

Plus it seemed his tranny tuning was more prone to downshift at less throttle vs eric's tunes. I liked matt's better, but eric's were close enough for me not to have any modifications done.

A good way to clean or at least help keep clean the turbo is to lay the hammer down every now and again. that 8 cylinder symphony is there for a reason.

I know. I don't beat on my truck, but I do jump on it once and a while. Most abuse it sees is when im towing.
