haze at idle with spartan 250?

I am running the latest spartan 250. S&B with clean filter, 112000km. 08 job 1.

Truck is up to operating temp and when idling for 1 or 2 minutes i notice a bad diesel haze. Would be great for getting rid of mosquitos if there were any.
When i manually put the truck to high idle, it completely clears up.

I have noticed a lot of irreglarities with the new tunes on my pickup....

Any ideas.

A bad diesel haze? As in you can see a lot of exhaust exiting or you smell it really strong? It's pretty common for the there to me some haze at idle. The bigger tunes use a lot of fuel and there isn't enough boost at idle to clear it up. If it is excessive, however, you could have an issue.....like a hanging injector, bad EBP sensor, etc.

What other " irreglarities" have you noticed? I'm running the same tune at the moment (250, DPR & EGR del) and my truck runs great.

I have h&s and notice sometimes it has a very faint haze and you can only see it if you look a certain way. So you should be fine. If your still worried get a video and post it up that way we can see how bad

I noticed mine having the haze too; cant really see it in the day, but at night you do; especially if there is a car behind you the headlights make it visible.

Which Im dumping the CCV back into the exhaust so thats part of mine too.

its like a cold 6.0 at idle. it didnt used to be like this. i think i have a bad injector. it will completely pollute the air in my shop in 10-15 seconds. and when you stand around it while idling outside it damn near chokes you.
