vgt "smoke "switch

hello, i was watching a video on youtube of someone i an 06 f250 6.0 and was dumping smoke and claimed to have unplugged the vgt switch... i recently bought a 2007 f250 6.0 and was wondering if i disconected the vgt if it would tear my turbo up or engine or overheat either? has anyone else done this before? would this void the warenty if i unplugged it? are there any other "quick" ways to dump smoke? i would very much appericate any comments. thank you

it could tear your turbo up because it would most definitely overspool. I'm willing to bet the truck you saw in the vid wasn't actually driving around but instead was sitting there in park and romping on the go-pedal??? It would not "void warranty" if you unplugged it. As for "quick" ways to dump smoke, maybe try putting saran wrap over the air filter. In short, don't waste your time.

Eh, smoke is overrated. It's cool the first time but it gets old quick. I have heard of someone putting a switch in to turn off the vgt, but it seems like a lot of work to make your truck not run right.
