Need some help...

I recently purchased a 1997 f-250 powerstroke and I want it to smoke at least a little. Right now it blows some white smoke and thats about it. It has 3.5 inch straight pipe. Any info would be awesome.

With the size of the stock injectors, you can't "roll coal". With my PHP chip I can put out a slight haze of black. New injectors along with supporting mods, and lots of cash, will give you smoke.

White smoke, when?...White smoke is generally a head gasket. Somewhere or someplace water is getting by and into the cylinder. A good way to check this (while not 100% accurate) is to look for bubbles in the water reservoir with the engine running. If you see ANY bubble(s) that means cylinder pressure is getting by the head gasket.
