a chip will do the trick, just keep in mind smoke doesnt mean power , also keep in mid black smoke is an overfuel condition which can cause exhaust temps to go higher than they should , need a egt gauge to kep an eye on egt temp, so you dont burn up your turbo

no you don't have to pull over and let it cool or anything like that, just get your foot off the throttle alittle. The only times your EGT's go up is when you really step on it

You want black smoke?

Geta 20,000 lb. load on your trailer, put a bag over your new intake, put your programmer in it's highest hp setting, start off at the bottom of a steep grade, and put the skinny pedal to the floor!!!

Let us know if you make it to the top.



Sorry...your question's been answered, I couldn't help it.
