manual or auto?

Lug it either way and it'll smoke. If it doesn't then maybe the chip isn't installed right

I only have the 10k and my truck smokes...

If it's not smoking, that would tell you the chip is not working?

How would it not smoke if the chip is working properly, even Heloman said his tuning mods doesn't seem to give it any more power.

hey duece its cool that you wanna see some smoke it does look cool yeah but maintain will tell you that same thing black smoke= unburnt fuel which means you are throwing more fuel than your motor can burn and loosing power and fuel economy in the process

I have a 2000 7.3 Manual, TS 6 pos, with 35" and my truck smoked good
until,---- After reading the forums about diy intake it was a must for me,
pvc-and a wix filter, my truck sounds great now thru the intake but the amount smoke decrease alot. So I put the factory intake and filter back on
and puff I had smoke, So I put the diy intake on because as someone posted already your just blowing unburned fuel out. If you want your truck to smoke you can give ts a call and they can burn you a program for smoke.

I have a DP-Tuner, and it will smoke like a freight train when on the 140 aggressive (smoke) setting. On the 120 race setting, it doesn' t smoke that much.

If the tuners can burn a specific program just for smoke, does anyone know how they do this? From what I understand the bigger power settings on a tune results in more black smoke.. so if they are burning you a program just for smoke, how much power are you getting in that specific smoke tune?
