Super duty Super rich at IDLE ??

So with the colder mornings in Northern California ive been letting my truck warm up alittle in the mornings ( Idle for 4-5 mins ) and the past couple mornings ive walked on the tail pipe side and wow holy rich raw diesel smell, i know deleted trucks smell rich until they break it completely but it smells REALLY rich its not smoking at all . I just wanted to see if alot of you guys have the same thing going on with your deleted trucks. Or do i need to looking into a new tune of FICM or injectors or....... haha

Even my stock truck has had a little more of the diesel smell first start on a cold morning. My guess is it is similar to choking a carbed motor for cold starts, until you get heat into it.

Yep, it's normal. More noticeable when it's colder.

It's a lot better than it was, but it's still there. I'm at about 800 miles in. The only thing I did different than you was use the Motorcraft filter.
It made enough of a difference that I will stick with it.
