Honestly, I don't know... I loaded the extreme tune only once so far, and the truck was already warmed up. The weathers been crap, and I've been towing a trlr for work.
speakn of weather can I leave the Tow tune while plowing ?

My street tune smokes REAL bad on cold start, I can't even use it which sucks cause it was gonna be my daily driver in the slippery months. I've had eric fix it 3 times and no change. Don't really know what to do thinkin about callin elite and gettin a street tune from them. My x-street is awesome doesn't smoke a bit, sick power.

some white smoke is normal on cold days..it is cold unburnt diesel fuel... my innovative tune smokes a bit, it has been real cold here.. try plugging it in overnight, see if that helps.... it cleared mine up real good.

Thanks everyone,
Just glad to know it's not only my truck.
I took off the trailer and plow tonite, then re-programmed to street tune and plugged her in, we'll see in the morning. I understand a little smoke is normal when cold, but this was reegodarndiculous.;
thanks again, as usual this site rox !
