No smoke?

Hey guys, I've only have my psd for a couple months now and realized it doesn't smoke at all. I mean when I floor it it doesn't make any black smoke at all. Is this normal? I'm not trying to make it smoke I just want to make sure nothing is wrong. I'm used to the old diesels that pour it out when you put the hammer down. Let me know if I should be worried.

most of the time unless it's blue or white, smoke means you're wasting fuel. you are good to go

Just means that it is burning all the fuel you throw in it so it is making maximum power.

Before my chip mine didn't smoke at all either. I'd floor it a couple times like you're doing and not even the slightest puff. So no nothing to worry about

If I just rev it sitting in the driveway all it does is put out a very thin layer of black smoke, but you can hardly see it. Usually it only smokes if it is between 2500 - 3000 rpm and shifts or I let off.
