Looney tune smoke

What's up guys. Just wondering if anyone can tell me how much the looney smokes on their truck. Vivian said it shouldn't be too bad but I'm smoking a LOT so I think I have a problem. Anyone have any input on the amount.

Just a pretty solid puff durring spool up, then a light haze at wot.
If its smoking bad you probably have a sticking unison ring it the turbo.
What year truck and how much boost is it making?

Looney tune smoke

Or cracked flex joints at the up-pipe/y-pipe, or CAC system leak.

Looney tune smoke

It's an 07 with 68,xxx on it. Turbo will go up to 26-27 psi. On the freeway if I'm cruising at 60-70 and push down maybe half throttle she blows a big cloud. I keep getting flipped off. From a stop I have to ease into it or it blows hard and if I just tap the pedal like half way and let go quick it puffs out a little dark cloud.. Only mod is the 4" turbo back straight pipe

Why don't you email Vivian?????

Mine smoked black if you stomp on it with no boost, but that makes sense. If you already have built boost and you mash it, you should see a solid haze as you warp to light speed.

Is it bogging down? That will cause smoke. The converter could be locked up too soon, Vivian should be able to fix you up one way or another.

I had this issue when i first got her tune, and the problem was this "If its smoking bad you probably have a sticking unison ring it the turbo." Replaced it ran fine, then threw a 03 on it ran fine, just took the 03 back off and put the 05 back on with the new uni ring and is fine.

Now on snap throttle I get a puff, when crusing and go to WOT haze, unless it is very low boost and it down shifts and it tends to take a little longer to spool back up then I get a slight puff then a haze.
