Smoke Color Question.

OK, here is goes. I'm fully deleted (See my sig for details), my truck runs like a raped ape, so I have no complaints there. However, I notice that when I'm rolling coal (I don't do it unless I'm punding the SH!T out of it) that my smoke is solid black until it starts to clear up. It then looks to have some grey smoke in it too? Is this normal? I have no idea why I even noticed it, but I'm always worried about something going wrong.

Thanks,
Turbo Kidd

Give a chance for people to input bro. A lot of the people on these forums work and are busy. leave it till later this evening or tomorrow morning.

As for your question, your not producing enough suit, Because you are burning all of your fuel all the way and its running cleaner without the help of Emissions.

Too me, it sounds like no real concern, but you can wait for some of the other guys to chime in.

I dont think its anything to worry about either. I would think it means that when the smoke is grey the turbo is cleaning up most of the fuel.

it may just look that way as the turbo starts clearing it up. should go from black to dark grey to light grey then to basically a haze if that.

^^^^what he said. also, i switched my LBF setting to 0, and not only do i have minimal smoke now (unless punched on hot), my mileage went up by 1.5-2mpg. go figure...more efficiently burnt fuel, better fuel economy...

I have been kicking the idea around of lower my LBF too. I'm running it on 4, and it is way too much fuel. Rolling coal isn't cool anymore, and the idea of better fuel economy is great!

Thanks!
