what can i do

ok so i have a 2001 F250 CC sb with some minor upgrades including a 5" turbo back and a CAI. my truck has a 6 speed in it. is there anyway i can turn up the fuel or the boost a little with out getting a programer. i would like more power but i would allso like to blow a little smoke not a hole lot and that's not all i want to do but my truck doesn't blow any. the only thing i don't like to is i don't build boost intill allmost when i am out of gear and i have to shift. any input would be great, due to a newborn in the house i don't have any real money to put into a tunner or anything.
thanks

You cant really turn up the fuel or boost on these except a tuner or resistor mod. Why would you want to blow smoke if your driving a stock *** truck?

These trucks build maximum boost at 1600rpms, a good deal before redline.

IDK I have the Edge Juice with attitude, 5" turbo back straight (thought it was 4" till I measured it) DIY intake and wicked wheel. Mine doesn't smoke much at all. I have seen some that smoke like a freight train. I wonder if they use farm diesel.

You can shim the FP up by using a ball bearing, but to be honest with you I would get a quality tune or tunes from DP or TW and don't mess around with all the other crap!! Better get gauges first, you want these chip or no chip!!

No crap? Man we get the stuff on the farm for about 1.70 a gallon. Will it hurt my truck to run it?
