Black smoke question

Got a question fellas is it normal for a stock superduty to blow a little bit of black smoke (not much at all very minimal hardly noticable) and to clear it up my dpf is still in place completely stock. Also i am installing my Afe magnum force stage 2 intake tomorrow anything you guys think i should know before hand or anything to watch out for?
Thanks in advance guys!

Someone on here told me DPF equipped trucks still blow a very small amount of black smoke. I just have never seen it

My 6.7 exhaust tips are just as clean as they were new...

If a stock truck with a DPF is blowing black smoke, even a little I'd think the DPF is cracked and no good. It does say that it might smoke while regen is taking place though. That's my 2 cents anyway....
