smoke?

So I have my exhause cut off. No Cat or muffler and no pipes. so the exhaust comes out right under the cab. When I floor it, it seems like I have a gray haze or sometimes blue (could be that Ive had a car with those blue headlights behind me) I looked under the truck and everything is pitch black. So Could my smoke come out a little less black because its all under the truck? and mixing with all the air and hitting stuff?

At higher rpm you may see a light haze. That is normal for a well tuned diesel. You won't see much black smoke from an OBS, and all of the soot will collect under the truck. I don't think you have a problem. You may want to get someone to follow you to see what is going on.

I agree, when the color of the smoke is a "haze" it's hard to distinguish colors. You might be a little overly worried.

If nothing is out of the norm, then you're good.
