White Smoke w/ Looney Cold fix installed

When i start my truck in the morning (bout 40 degrees out) with the looney tune installed it just gives a puff of white for like 5 seconds....... When i changed the tune to the Looney w/cold fix it starts easier but it puts out an extreme amount of white smoke for atleast 4-5 min... IS it suppose to do this? Runs fine still.... no white smoke after it warms up.... just kinda curious

White smoke is unburnt fuel. Call your tuner and see what they recommend.

I had a diesel tractor a few years back that did the same thing. The rings were shot. Once replaced no more white smoke.

also do you think we could use the high idle mod to get rid of it ? and does the high idle mod idle high all the time or does it go back to normal idle after its warm. on the sct xcal that is.

I would say you either have a lazy injector or 2 and you dont have enough fuel pressure

Had same problem with mine 4 lazy injectors and needed a new fuel pressure regulator becuase it was putting out the minimum psi, after it is warm it doesnt take as much psi to ignite your fuel because the cylinder temps are higher, thats the explanation i got from my mechanic anyway
