Stock smoke?

I think something might be wrong with my truck, it has started to smoke more heavily over the past month or so, nothing crazy like i have a loony tune, but heavier than it did before, is there anything that could cause this? I just have a MBRP turbo back, thats it. Today i did a WOT run, from a dead stop, and even after the turbo spooled, it still smoked and I was like holy **** that was cool! Then i thought uh oh something might not be good in there. Anyways what do you guys think, I have to get the truck serviced in about 600 miles so I can have them look at it then too.

EGR valve is dirty. I would replace it vs. cleaning it.

6.0's don't smoke black smoke unless there is a problem. That is the reason for the emission crap.

Maybe the first time in about a week and a half of WOT. The truck did throw an EGR code at about 10,000 miles, and I think they just cleaned it, so what your saying is that if it was stuck open, it would smoke heavier than normal? With it open, wouldn't it just be like having a delete pipe on it, just wondering

How many miles on the truck? What color smoke?
Ever been flashed with hot tune or even by Ford?
Sometimes a flash from Ford corrects these issues. I'd almost bet EGR valve got coked up
after WOT. It's under warranty! That EGR valve is easy to clean and expensive to replace

Usually if they stick open the truck will run terrible.

I am actually have the same thing. Like in the past month Whenever I get on it it puts out black smoke. NOT crazy smoke but a decent amount. I don't know why. My truck does have 225000 soo i'm worried that something could be wrong. I also think I might need to change my air filter.

Any thoughts?


I have the 10K mod, but this weekend I will be installing a TS chip.

Sorry guys, the truck has 15,000 on it, and its just black diesel smoke. It seems to run pretty normal, just smoke MORE than normal, I mean I like it, but I know it's not right.
