no smoke??

A question for you guys - my truck rarely rolls any smoke - I really have to get my foot in it and be mean to it to see any smoke. All mods are listed in sig, but they are: AFE intake, MBRP 4" turbo back, and Superchips (I know, I know... there are ZERO Superchips fans on here - I bought it before I was educated enough to buy a better product). Truck runs great and has plenty of power. Any ideas?

the stupidchips is def a power adder but nothing compared to an SCT or even an edge, anything like that. save up some money and just buy an SCT and get some custom tuning and you will be 100% happier

No smoke here either

I have had my 6.0 for 2 months now and it doesn't smoke at all. Today I had a 4" MBRP kit installed with CAT delete and still no smoke??????? I'm ordering an SCT from Innovative soon and I hear that closes the EGR valve. Will that cause the exhaust to let out some smoke?

the "smoke" is just unburnt fuel from the added timing and fuel that the custom tuning does. without it i most likely wont get anything out of the 6.0

i havent seen a superchip smoke much (some guys in this area have them) . an SCT with custom tuned extreme race or extreme street will give you the warm smokey goodness your looking for.
