Whatever you do don't do a smoke switch. But all in all a smoke tune isn't good for your truck

Just wrap your intake with plastic bags so no air gets into the motor, that should do it!

Your going to get bashed for this question on here...

Smoke isnt power smoke is wasted fuel, if its not burning its not making power!

That being said, if you just want to smoke people out, which I like to do to the Hybrids on the freeway, PPE make some good smoke. Or you can do what HondaRider did, write your own "smoke tune" with efi live thats all fuel and no boost.

IMO, the Edge CTS is the way to go. Its simple, touch screen, on the fly, and reads - clears DTCs, tells you injector balance rates, and all that stuff

if your going to pay that much mind as well buy efi and have a chip with endless possiblities. Yes i know edge comes with gauges and efi doesnt.

The quad smokes pretty good as long as you give her hell with no boost. Otherwise EFI Live .........

i run the quadzilla and have ran every tune except the 110! on my truck, they all SMOKE. the 135hp tune will roll a cloud along with the 90hp tune. i have it on the 70hp tune right now and it smoke too but not nearly as much! the 135hp tune is actually a little rediculous and i found my self trying not to smoke bc i didnt want to piss people off with it.

if you go with efi live know what your doing first before you buy it dont be cocky if someone knows and wants to help or you can pay for someone to build you a tune
