Noticing less smoke

Well ive noticed that since i installed the AFE stage 2 intake, i have less smoke coming out the back when turning up the chip. is this because im getting more air in or could it be something else?

well i know im getting more air, but i just wanna be sure that that would cause there to be less smoke at WOT with the chip turned up. not like a failing injector or something.

Many in the industry says "Smoke is wasted fuel." So...going by that I'd have to say that your chip, along with more air, is probably burning the fuel more efficiently, hence less smoke.

Yes more air = more fuel burnt = less black smoke. That means you should be getting more power to the wheels.
