Then you would have your smoke only when you put the pedal to the metal.
Yea, EFI can pretty much do anything. In addition to the added horse power, the guy actually created a smoke tune for me (not sure how all that works, I'm assuming just dumping a ton of unburned fuel to the motor) It rolled smoke like crazy. Especially at higher speeds. Sure do miss it... lol

EFI Live can make you Roll Coal. However there is more to change than just dumping a bunch of fuel, and smoke tunes can be very harmful to your truck. You wont find very many "Established" EFI Live Tuners to do this for you. Yes EFI Live can make your truck do just about anything. However its true potential over other "Cookie Cutter" Tuners, (PPE,Edge,Diablo, Etc, Etc,) is refinement. Just my two cens!

The one limp was enough to scare me and make me realize that the EFI tune I had was amazing but definitely not safe for the truck. PPE is a decent tune for lower speeds, I'm not happy with it after about 60 mph though.

Im still running a stock ally 5 speed with EFI Live And DSP 5 switch. I have a few high horsepower tunes one being +198 hp. Keep my foot out of it in 4th and 5th and no problems..."Yet" Like I said before the refinement my EFI Live tuner makes with his tunes is on the banks of unbelievable. I have never had a vehicle shift so smooth in my life. Literally you hear the exhaust tone change but no physical feeling of shift in the truck. A good EFI LIve tune is worth Gold in my opinion.
