Ficm tune make Sct smoke more?

As it says I got the atlas 40 a month ago or so and got the street and tow tune from Eric loaded up today I've had these tunes befor and thay didn't smoke now the street tune puts it out on take off and the tow doesn't really do it but a hair .. could this be because the ficm tune? Or maybe cause its studded profile this time?

If the atlas 40 is similar to the mild flash they use to offer, it's about 10% more smoke.

I noticed some extra smoke with my 80. I'm sure the studded tune added some also

Additional smoke is normal with the FICM tunes. As mentioned above, the larger FICM tunes will smoke more than the lighter files.

A stock ECM when paired with a Herc 100 file will smoke at WOT before your turbo has time to catch up

If you have any questions feel free to shoot me an email or call us up! My extension is 304

Did you tell Eric that the FICM had the Atlas 40 tune on it?
