No Smoke!

I shimmed the FPR and did the 10k mod (actually 4.7k with a pair of 1 amp diodes) But the only smoke I can make come off my tires. So is there anything else I can do short of a tuner to get more power and or smoke from my truck.

I would like to get a tuner soon but I want a new turbo too.
I'm not sure if i would have to get the dp retuned after that.

Ya I know that but I would like to blow a little every now and then. But really I just see people with the same mods and they say there truck smokes like crazy, wondering if there is any difference. Main idea is power power and more power.

yeah i agree....smoke is just wasting fuel.....although ocasionally it looks cool to do it.....mine does it fine.....no mods, but i have a baldwin air filter in the box that is not as deep as the standard ones, so i think im getting a little more air in.....mines as auto, and i find it only smokes if its just shifted to 2nd and i really romp on it...

thats my advice...
