You need the chip for real power. You can do what is called a 10K resistor mod, but you will see little gains compared to a chip. Just save your money to buy a good chip from Tony Wildman or DP.

We are coming into the days where smoke will begin to really hurt our sport. At SEMA it was the hot topic with EPA reps and several diesel gurus...yes they include Gale Banks. Anyway smoke on the street is really going to get us into trouble. At the strip it's kind of an issue with safety in relation to visibility of the trucks in the next lane. On the sled pull track no one really cares. I agree that smoke looks cool, but in an effort to help give diesel hot rodding a good name I am trying to curb it lately. Diesel still has an overall bad image on the general public. I was talking to my buddy's dad about what kind of van he wanted to replace an existing fleet van. I asked him gas or diesel, and his wife immediately said "gas" before he could speak. I asked her why, and she said "they are noisy, they stink, and they smoke" I had to inform her that modern diesels, at least CR engines are much quieter, don't "stink" and blow no smoke as long as all factory after engine treatments are intact, cats, mufflers, and those with the new DPF's...heck even when they are gutted the most you can get it is a tiny slightly noticeable haze. Just something to think about - blow your smoke, but try to keep it off the street. If you do, try to contain it to the country side, not in the city........

If everyone stops and thinks about it, we have to come together and at least reduce smoke on the street. A few of my friends have gotten letters in the mail from the Department of Public Works with warnings about excessive smoke. I haven't heard of anyone being pulled over for it yet around here, but I'm sure with the skyrocketing popularity of diesels and modding them that we can only expect more and more smoking trucks running around. There are a ton more diesels on the road than there used to be, but we are still way, way, waaaaay outnumbered by gassers that have no idea about diesels, what kind of power they can make, mileage they get, longevity and reliability....a huge majority of them still see the smoke and will react negatively. Believe me, I don't want to sound like Gale Banks, I personally would prefer he shut his big mouth, but believe it or not some of what he speaks is true! I just feel that as our sport continues to grow, so does the amount of trucks smoking out city streets, which has a domino effect on the uneducated and those that already do not like diesels.
