SCT SF3 economy tune smoky when cold...

Anyone running DJ's tunes during winter? I have the Economy tune on and if my truck is not plugged in overnight it smokes out the whole neighborhood when started for like 5 to 10 mins!...its embarresing..I think its because of the increased fuel level sent to the injectors..r my glow plugs bad or could an injector be stuck? When my truck is plugged in all night she starts up great with a normal smoke haze but when cold start no plug shes too smoky!

I have run DJ's Looney daily for over a year now and my truck smokes a good bit when first starting when it is 15-20 degrees. It clears up after a few minutes so I don't really worry about it.

Mine does when it's cold a good percentage of the time but not for long. Mine is a crappy EGR valve though more so than anything to do with the tune. I got white smoke for just a little bit.
