That's one thing I'm hoping not to have to do, no chip for 3 weeks sucked! What about the wicked wheel 2? Would that help clear up the smoke?

I was too told "hottest" but back when I had the ts, I got best on "light tow" as it was called I think is diffrent in each truck (mines 8900lbs empty)

i got the best on the extreme as well as long as you are gentle with your foot.

as for less smoke, be very gentle on the throttle (took me awhile to figure it out), and check for exhaust/boost leaks

I'll have to do some playing around with each setting, see what gets the best. I cant believe how touchy the throttle is though, I hardly give it any and I'm taking off. Also how much boost is safe on a stock Turbo, if I get on it hard I'm hitting.around 35 pounds of boost(hard to tell, the gauge flutters like crazy) I'm worried that if I get the ww2 I'll end up blowing the turbo. Any way to fix the flutter as well?
