I have a Edge chip on it. And I know that the smoke is a waste of money but I love to see the diesels blowing smoke when you get on them. Its just redneck cool. My truck is called the redneck truck by my friends and I like it to be redneck. I jsut think the smoke is cool and shows the power of the diesels.
If you really want to blow smoke you are gonna have to upgrade your injectors, and I would suggest getting a custom tuned chip like a tony wildman chip. If the truck is stock you are gonna have to replace the flattened stock downpipe as well with a three inch downpipe and maybe a new system as well. If you are doing injectors though you are going to have to beef up your tranny and I would suggest some kind of intake as well. But really the only way to get an OBS truck is to install injectors and do the supporting mods. Oh and you will also need guages
I think that there might be something wrong with my edge chip cause its not been right since my ECM went out so Im going to send it back to the makers and have them check it to make sure there is nothing wrong.
just fyi. im not sure edge is very good quality. i had one and it work alright but it would reset every once in a while and loose all the info. i called them about it and they said they would fix it if i sent it in but i sold the truck before i did. maybe it was just mine but i don't think i would get another one.
by the way, when it worked it would blow smoke right when you got on it but not as much as it could have. there was also a menu that allowed you to adjust the level of fuel. stock it is set at level 3 of 5 for stages 3 - 5 of the chip. if you set that to five it will smoke a little more. not sure if yours is the same. mine was a platimun on a 6.0.
Yeah it would definitely be a good idea to beef up the tranny and jim @ Rosewood said he could do 130cc injectors when I talked to them. If I get the injectors before beefing up the tranny I will just be light on it until I get a torque converter and valve body. But you are right its definitely a good idea to upgrade the tranny
