if he's saying LBF on 0 is too much smoke, Matt's tunes aren't going to fix his problem.

6.4's are dirty. I run Matt's tunes on both of my trucks, but they are not 100% smoke free by any stretch

I am hoping 6.0 manifolds, a ported intake manifold and a 71mm lp turbo will make my truck smoke free.

6.4s are actually pretty clean in my opinion. Of course the race tunes are not going to be smoke free. My truck runs pretty dang clean on all of my tunes except IDP race and gearhead race.

Low boost fueling is only what it says, controls fueling at low boost. Not going to do much after boost comes up.

Maybe the OP should give a little more info on when he is having smoke problems. WOT? Just taking off normally at a redlight? Cruising?

Also, what are your modifications to your truck OP besides the programmer? Full Exhaust? Intake? etc

running the easy tunes with LBF on 0, you'll still get visible smoke... a 6.0 or an older 5.9 cummins can be 100% smoke free. I've never seen a smoke free 6.4 that didn't have the DPF in place

A minimaxx can be as clean or as dirty as you let it be. If your getting smoke at lights or passing people you may need to adjust the way you're driving. I can get a big puff at a light or go almost totally clean just by easing into it a little. Passing people, the same thing. There is more than enough power there that most of it is unneeded.
