TW Smoke Tune question

I am going with the TW reburn and I have heard mixed reviews on the smoke tune. I have the normal tunes that TS performance puts on them and I can get Smoke with the 140hp and high RPms but I don't like reving the engine for smoke.
Not that the smoke is a must have but it's cool sometimes. I'm just looking for some reviews on what rpm's and how much smoke your "smoke tune" makes.
Should I get it or just get something else in it's place?
Thanks.

It will smoke..but isn't good for the diesel community as you just fuel the opposition and that just get us a bad rap.

Don't bother, my street tune smokes almost as much as smoke and its a lot nicer to drive with. Obvously we all know that smoke is not good but sometimes neccesary

I understand, I'm not going to drive with it on but sometimes it's fun to smoke out a cummins or a duracrap. It's also good for bonfires with good looking cowgirls ha.

Seriously though street is almost as smokey. Find a different tune for your last position

its a horrible to tune to drive on, it has no real purpose other than to ruin our reputation. Its basically a 17 and under tune is what it should be labeled.

The extreme tune will smoke but also use that unburnt fuel in the higher RPMS. So if your on the track and want to lay down a cloud extreme is the best way to go
