Too much smoke! Dpf Cat delete

Hello all, is there a setting on the programmer (Mini Maxx) that can help me to limit the amount of smoke when I am on the throttle. I don't want any un wanted attention and would like the least amount of smoke as possible. Thanks

When you very first plug the Mini into the truck and you start the set up you can adjust the "Low Boost Fueling". That will get rid of alot of smoke. Also, not having a lead right foot will eliminate alot of smoke!

That is what I figred when i was downloading the tune but i was unsure. Do you know exactly how i can do this or what to set it too? Do i have to re dowload the tune again to adjust the low boost fueling or can i get to it with the tune already downloaded? Thanks!!

set it to 0 for the least amount of smoke and roll into the throttle, it's really only going to smoke before the turbo spools up then it should clear up

Thanks! This won't affect the engine in anyway right, by setting it to 0? Also do i have to completely redownload the tune?

Yeah you have to re-download the whole tune. It wont hurt the engine any either, I have be running mine at 0 the whole time I've had the Mini on the truck

yes you do have to redownload the tune but no the only thing it's doing is reducing the amount of fuel sent to the engine until the turbo spools up it will make the truck less responsive I just leave mine set on the default which is 3 and just ease into the throttle.
