custom smoke switch

ok so i am making a custom smoke switch. im planning on putting a relay on the vgt solenoid.. i guess thats the right way? i unplugged the vgt and it dumps the smoke but if i leave it off for like 5 minutes its like it learns that it is smoking to much and just smokes like a normal truck.. so any thoughts?

I'm not sure why you would want to do that but I assume that it defuels when it senses the low boost

The smoke switch is not meant for continuous use sadly. its more of the, "Hey, lets smoke out that ricer for a good city block!" kinda thing.

yes, just splice into one of the wires for that solenoid and when you activate your "smoke switch" it should break the circuit just like unplugging it.

is there any difference in the sending unit or anything because i have an 07 with a SCT and when i cut the blue wire to the solenoid it wont smoke at all its getting defueled should i still wire it to a switch and see if right after i turn it on it will smoke cause it will sit for a minute unplugged before i try it

I don't think you're supposed to cut it completely, just splice into it.
