Too much smoke

I put my sct on performance yesterday just to mess around and see what would happen, rest of truck is stock and I'm selling the programmer today, holy cr@p it blew more smoke then my buddys 12 valve! But it got old real quick haha. My obs was never able to even dream of that much smoke... is there something wrong with it I mean it dumped so much smoke it didn't seem right for a powerstroke...

I have not used an SCT stock tunes but i'm guessing it is just dumping fuel and your stock setup cannot push enough air to use it up.

Not to be too rude but instead just take $40 out the ATM and light it on fire. People will think you are just as cool. And there is your smoke.

alot of fuel + alot of air = big power... alot of fuel (from your chip) + stock air set up = smoke show (waste of fuel)

My truck has no need to get tunes or an intake, because the owner, ME, doesn't feel the need to f with the truck like my last powerstroke, that 7.3 is literally the worst diesel truck I've ever been in, and I'm not taking a chance with this 7.3!

Thought you just said you're gonna get a different sct?

My Samsung SGH-I997 made me send this.
