Black Smoke??

I'm new to this forum stuff. But i have a 2000 F250 and its got a Banks- turbo kit, intercooler & piping, 4" exhaust, six-gun tuner, intake, torque converter.
I know this isn't really a problem, i hope not, but my truck will not black smoke at all. And i didnt know if there was a way to tinker with it or if i got to buy another chip or what.

well that means its running good. i would ditch the 6 gun tuner and get custom tunes. That will make a world of difference

black smoke is not a good thing. that means your turbo is lighting fast which is good. a lot of smoke is lag

Well, typically you want a little smoke or haze or else that means your turbo is being underfueled. But it's rather easy to max out powestroke injectors which is why there is very little smoke.
