Less power and no smoke now???

I have a 99 power stroke that used to be my daily driver but now is a play/show/offroad truck. Back in the day it used to have loads of power and blow black smoke everywhere but, now it feels like stock and blow absolutely no smoke what so ever... What happened? It has an Airaid intake, superchips programmer set at the highest setting, and stock exhaust with the muffler removed and routed to infront of the rear tire. This is the same setup I've been running sence it was my daily. All the rest of the motor and trans are stock it has 135k on the motor and seems to run fine just seems to have less power. Someone please tell me how to get my power/smoke back!!!

Possible chip failure? Can you change the settings on your chip? If you can try this and see if you can feel a increase or decrease in power. If not you might have a chip malfunction. I am not sure just thought I would through it at ya.

I agree, set it back to stock then reload the performance setting and see if that helps

PS: its not a chip its a superchips programmer if that matters.. Do we think it could be injectors? Could a regulator shim kit help?

usually if it is something major then the truck will be failing elsewhere as well. i, like the other guys, would recommend changing tunes on that programmer and see if it makes any difference. cause you should be having some power and smoke lol
