too much black smoke

Ok guys I was wandering why I have sooooo much black smoke on mid acceleration. I know with my chip and split shot injectors I will have smoke but I am even getting some black smoke in my stock setting on the chip and not even under flooring it. I can be in daily setting and just give it part throttle and make quit a bit of smoke. Now I have no issues with blowing some coal under hard acceleration but all this smoke is getting out of control. The smoke does get easier to make in the hotter setting and in my street and race tune it is rediculous the amounts it puts on on stomping on the throttle. Any ideas?

stage 2's and stock turbo with a manual. Nothing you can do but upgrade your turbo. I have stage ones and I had the same problem with my manual.

Couldnt hurt to check, but thats a LOT of fuel.... especially with a manual. TW can really crank up the fuel without having to worry about blowing a tranny. Just my opinion

use a compressor and rig up a pvc cap with a gauge and compressor hose atatchment and pump up the intake tube to like 15 psi, and listen for leaks.
