Deleted, smoke on cold start?

Truck is a '13 deleted and tuned with a no power/emissions off only tune. This video is a cold start, 34 degrees.

Truck had no smoke prior to deleting. Smoked after delete, thought it maybe a turbo issue so I put the truck back stock and got the turbo replaced. Re-deleted it and it still smokes.

How does this compare to other peoples trucks that are deleted? The smoke smells of diesel.

Mine's a '12.

No smoke. Not even at 12*.

Your other thread said Tyrant tunes. Same here.

I can't really help you with why it's smoking, but it's not normal.

My 14 does exactly what you showed in the video. Don't worry about it.

The colder it gets, the more "smoke."

0F to -15F, it clouds pretty good, above 0F to your temps, it is similar.

Again, nothing to worry about.

My 2011 does this too. About 1/4 as much as yours. I always figured it was from all the oil the CCV system dumps into the intake.

I'm running PIP tune right now. I was looking at the Tyrant tunes to see if it would fix the smoke and surge issues.

The smoke lasts as long as it did in the video. After that its clear.

This is what confuses me. I read of people that get smoke and then read of others who don't. What tune are you running?

This is something I was wondering. I'd try a CCV delete if I was pretty confident that was the issue.

Reportedly, these engines produce a lot of blow-by gasses or vapors, but I've read about guys with a CCV delete that used the No Limit oil catch can and they were getting a tablespoon or two of oil in it every oil change. If it is blowing by that much oil to cause your smoke, I can't see it clearing up like yours. If you delete the CCV and that's the cause, it's just going to move where the smoke, or oil, exits.

I’m no expert by any means but I’d say no worries about it. You said you’d just recently deleted. So you’ve removed a pretty substantial filter from the exhaust system. One that most certainly would have covered this smoke up.

With what OKC said these do have a lot of blow-by. Try taking your oil cap off with it running. You could blow dry your hair with it if you were looking for the Greased Lightning look. When I test drove mine that was a concern. Till I test drove a 2012 and a 2014 and they all did the same.

It's normal. All 11-14 trucks I have deleted do that in the cold....
