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?

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.
