Zoodad Mod = More Smoke?

Hey y'all, new to the forum although I have done a lot of reading on here as a guest. I just did the Zoodad mod this morning, not expecting much as it is just drilling a hole in front of the intake, but I just ran to the store and something struck me as odd.

I took precautions to block off the intake ahead of time so I didn't get any dust in there and I even vacuumed out any remaining particles after the project. I put a screen in front to block out any leaves, big bugs, etc. just as your suggestions have mentioned, but as I was driving I was getting some black smoke out of the stacks.

Not "Rollin' Coal" by any means, but a decent black puff when leaving stop signs and lights and also when I get on it a but my truck never smoked before. Maybe a hair here and there but nothing compared to now.

Should this be happening? Thank you.

There is no way that the Zoodad mod can cause more smoke!

The only way that it could be related to the Zoodad mod would be if you caused something to partially restrict the air getting into the filter, but it sounds like you made sure that wouldn't happen.

I would suggest to double check your filter itself to make sure it is clear.

agreed

no way it affected anything
and the OEM filter can hold over 4lbs of dirt before the filter minder sets

I double checked it and it has nothing more than any normal filter would. I shook it out and vacuumed what I could carefully after the ride. I am still running OEM intake but will definatly keep an eye on it. Thought I would ask just for piece of mind.

Did you remember to remove the rag you put in front of the turbo?

Not making fun of you as I didn't remember it either.

I didn't put a rag in front of the turbo. I taped off the intake entrance and then placed a block off wood to catch the hole saw bit going through it. I will just keep an eye on it.
