well i can assure you the stack doesnt help make more smoke.. about the only thing it does is make it in plain sight at all times. pretty much you need a chip.. wether its a chip tuner or dial.

i like the dial bullydog one but my uncles got a superchip and a buddy has another.. i dont know the honest difference betwen them all..
can and wait to see where it pops up again
as for the oil leak theres about 200 places it could be coming from i would suggest wiping down the engine where ever you can and wait to see where it pops up again..

if its not alot its normal, mine does too. I have a Superchip tuner and if I had to buy again I would put a chip in instead. RDS has TS 6 pos chips with PHP tunes for $300. Any tuner will cost the same, I would do the chip.

Also if you havent yet, get a 3" DP on there to go with the straightpipe
