im no expert but i do some readin up. and its ok to do with any chip i have mine done and the smoke isnt any more noticeable but the power on topend is somewhat noticeable. with these trucks the only way to acheve more smoke is threw injector mods. but like i said im no expert im sure there will be a powerstoke genius threw here shortly to correct me if im wrong.

Its fine to do, I have TW tunes and my FPR is shimmed. I have heard of the fuel pressure getting way out of hand with the shim and tunes but mine stays in the happy zone
