Smoke switch through uplifters?

i know everones got mixed feelings about a smoke switch, and it wouldnt be something i use as a daily thing, just to occasionally smoke a ricer or cummins... so the big question is, has anyone made one to flow into a stock uplifter switch? if so how was it?

It's the same as wiring any switch, just hook it up to the factory wires under the dash and your good to go

It would suck to be blowing smoke on a cummins and your turbo goes boom. I would laugh my *** off lol. Then in return I'm sure the cummins driver would show you what smoke really looks like lmao

Just get some tunes. You'll be able to blow plenty of smoke.

A smoke switch is just asking for trouble. Heard of way to many issues arising from them, especially with a VGT

I wasn't aware that you could do a smoke switch with a non-VGT....Seeing how it's the vane control that allows it....You know something I don't?
