SMOKE/RACE tune?

Well, I have an SCT SF2...and when I raced last weekend someone made the comment "Wow...nice run, but where's the smoke? That's really clean for a diesel!". I WANT ALOT OF SMOKE!!!! And power at the same time...any input?

a well tuned diesel shouldn't smoke, technically. Right?

you cant make power if you waste the fuel out the exhaust.... Plus your egts will be uncontrollable with smoke.....

If you want smoke compared to what you're putting out right now, you'll have to take a hit in your track times. Smoke is over rated.

the ones who say that actually think that smoke=HP. well, smoke is unburnt fuel going out your exhaust pipe.
