Best tuner or chip to blow a lot of smoke

What would be the best chip/ or tuner to get for a 2008 6.4l powerstroke and what other things would I have to get to go along with the tuner or chip?

I would recommend cutting the exhaust off before the dpf and installing a Walmart plastic bag over your air filter.

Thank god the 6.4's do not blow much smoke and there is not too much you can do to make them do it. I feel like mine blows too much when I hammer it coming onto the freeway sometimes.

But to answer your question, pretty much nothing. There is no smoke switch like the 6.0's have.

I recommend the OP to read the thread where all these tuners are getting penalized millions of dollars. Read that and if you still want to blow smoke, GTFO. The best tuner for power is probably the H&S. Spartan is good too but IMHO harsher on the truck.

Now the key to really "rolling coal" using the cut off DPF filter and the Wal-Mart sack is you have to really get the smoke built up. The easiest way to do this is to start the truck in a garage or other enclosed space and run the rpm's at about 1200 for 14-16 minutes. Then, wait another 10 minutes or so at idle and it should work.

Post your results on here. I'm curious to see how well it "rolls coal".
