Smoking the diesel

I know this question is going to sound pretty dumb to you diesel vets, but since I'm a newbie to this world I have to ask. How do I get my truck to smoke? I used to have backup lights on my old tahoe that could blind tailgaters at night, but now I want to make this big boy cloud the air in that situation . Are there any mods I can do to help this out, or is it really attainable in stock form?

a chip and intake will help you burn less fuel, which will end up in smoke!

With a stock truck? Put an oil injector line in just after the exhaust manifold and a botton you can push to operate a tiny pump. good way to get rid of your old used oil.
Otherwise, get some big mods!
I just ordered the quadzilla but I don't think that will make smoke. Gotta go bigger than that i think.

In order to smoke you will need a chip. In order to put a chip in, and expect to safely smoke, you will need gauges, particularly EGT, and a 4" exhaust. Discussion as to which chip could go on a long time, and ill leave that to the guys with personal experience with them

Well thats no good...I had wanted to use a chip or programmer from the get-go, but from reading on here about having a footprint left over I dont know...We'll see, thanks to the help of some vendors I've learned how to reset the computer to clear a code, but I dont know if I can trust it (got a long time before the warranty is up...75,000 miles or 4 years...). I was hoping that an exhaust could accomplish the same thing.

i dont think just an exhaust will do it, looks like the smoke is gonna have to wait, unless u do like CHerny suggested, which ive never heard of but sounds cool

Hello, new to site. Looks like you know the PSD. Would like to ask an opinion. I have a 2000 7.2 f-250. Before chip prgram... smoked alot when stomping on accelerator. Got a Bully Dog and programmed basic +50HP. The extra HP is nice, however, I'm getting tons of smoke and loud dieseling ( sounds like vavles clattering). From reading the forum, it sounds like it should not smoke alot without severe modifications. Is there anything wrong with the engine. Thanks for any info, mIke mcb613@comcast.net

Chenry might have been kidding, but there is truth in his statement. The military usues a similar setup on their diesel tanks to set up smoke screens. A small amount of diesel is sprayed inside of the HOT exhaust pipe near the motor and it smokes like crazy. A small windshield washer fluid tub, a few lines, a DIY Injection and a pump and you'd be set.
