Least amount of black smoke?

I have the basic tunes for the Spartan. Which tune is going to give me the least amount of black smoke? I loaded the 250 tune, and it had gobbs of black smoke with about 50% throttle. Is that normal? Which should I use for DD. Thanks.
Matt

I daily drive the 250 tune and as long as I dont punch it there is little to no black smoke, just a light haze from a stop but cleans up fast. As you said 50% throttle and above will net some pretty good smoke. If you want no black smoke, load the 210 tune. It is a pretty clean running tune and will still net you some decent MPG's.

I loaded the 210 and it drives like stock...untill you punch it. The shifts are super nice and smooth and not much smoke. I'll try it for a while. Thanks for the help.

6.4 and 16 did you buy this truck used? If so are you sure there is no programer loaded on the truck? A stock truck shouldnt smoke especially with the DPF still in place. If a stock truck smokes at all it will be a very light haze from a dead stop if the truck is in regen? What does your intake filter look like? Is it dirty or clogged? Less air to the motor will cause a little more smoke but nothing that will black out a road.

For a race tune, the 275 is pretty clean. Also, the 300 tune (level 3) is very clean and a great DD tune.

Do you have to do the tranny relearn every time you change tunes? How is the shifting different on the 275 from the 210? The 210 shifts so nice. Thanks.

Not sure, I didn't run the higher ones too long. I couldn't keep blacking out the street every time I punched it.
