Exhaust smell after tuning

I run the 210, and wow, it will almost choke you to be around the exhaust on my truck. I have had other diesels, and never had one stink so bad. Anybody else's truck nearly choke them out? It is to the point that if I am idling, I don't roll my window down.

Your signature doesn't state that your DPF has been removed. If your are still running the DPF, the exhaust will be quite strong during a regen. Just a thought!

You're probably just not used to it... Ya, it smells a lot more like a diesel truck once you delete it, but I drove a '96 7.3 today and that had a lot stronger odor to it than my truck has... I guess it's the same thing as the exhaust smell of a new Prius vs. that of a '60s muscle car

My truck smelled terrible with whatever Motorcraft oil my dealer put in it, but as soon as I made the switch to Valvoline 5W40 full synthetic....it smells like a diesel should smell.
