Updated mini max now my truck blows black smoke??

Ok so I updated my mini max yesterday to the latest tune. I am running same horsepower and settings. With the old tune it would only black smoke if I accelerated pretty quick from a stop. With the new tune it black smokes when I take of from a stop no matter how fast I accelerate. Has anyone else noticed this? Does anyone have a possible explanation?

my new tunes are smokeless compared to my old ones. I run lb fueling at 2 and it still doesn't smoke only if I really get on it and then its not much. I love it.

I completely agree. I have yet to load one with less than lbf 3. And they dont smoke at all until you floor it.

Mine hardy smoked at all before I did this last update and now it's really clean. They must have made some serious changes because of the EPA stuff. Not that it's a bad thing. Personally I think h&s should have re-worded when it asked you to adjust the low boost fueling instead of saying more smoke and less smoke they should have worded it differently because you know good and well what all the idiots picked........5!!!!! Lol
