i dont get it

so what is so effin amazing about rolling out unburned fuel?i keep seeing all these posts about how can i get smoke.i read these and think well umm you dont want smoke.you want it clean so you arent wasting your dollar down at the fuel pump.i mean if my truck smoked i would add meth or propane to clear it up and use the fuel its spraying in there.am i wrong in this?i guess i could see where it might be fun to smoke out a buddy or have a smoke comp. but not every day.its wasted money and power.

I can make my truck roll some serious coal when i want it to. but i can also drive it normal and not see a puff of smoke. Im not opposed to rollin a little coal, its not like i go around spewing out smoke all the time. to each their own, im not gonna bash anybody for asking questions about how to make their truck smoke.

I want to tune my truck, but I want it to be as clean as possible for many reasons.

1. Don't want to piss anyone off. This is probably a reason why there is so much diesel legislation now....the intense amount of smoke. The smoke is visible pollution that even the dumbest person can see and thus they complain.

2. Waste money. I'd rather have the fuel burned as well

3. Stains the truck and trailer. The more smoke I have, the more it stains my trailer :/.

So, I'm with the OP. I am not saying smoking is bad, I just don't want any more smoke than I need to have a good running truck (vs stock form of course).

pretty much all the guys who write tunes can make you a tune with no smoke and still add alot more power. I would only go with custom tunes if ur lookin to tune your truck.
