Superchips isn't a big smoke giver on the 7.3's. It'll pour on the 6.0, but if you want smoke from a 7.3 you have to look at something like the edge or better yet custom tunes like TS Performance's chip or the I can't believe i'm saying this Jody's tunes at DP-tuner...
I didn't noticed much smoke with my 7.3 when I had a superchip. I think on the race or high performance mode it just lets you have a little more boost or something....but you can have all the boost the turbo is capable of but without some extra fuel it won't give you any real extra power. Same goes for fuel, a bunch of fuel without the air isn't gonna help......Yes the smoke is unburnt fuel, but once your turbo catches up and push enough air in the combustion chamber that it will burn the all extra fuel the chip is putting in and give you more power.
So, it's about 98% likely that you're fuel system is okay....it's just Superchips...day904x4 on here has one on his 97 and had the same complaint....no smoke
