i know smoke is bad but my truck does not smoke AT ALL! Im running PPE on 3 and PPE makes their tunes pretty somkey...i even unplugged the MAF sensor and drove around the block...not even a puff. It never has smoked but it runs great (no leaks or wierd noises) and seems to be making good power....should i just be happy on how clean it runs or should i suspect something like an injector issue

let's gear it up to blow TONS of smoke,with any luck I can buy the tranny and the body when you're done....:help
Get the PPE on lvl 5,no tow/haul,and just lug it[it'll put the hurt/heat on trans quick tho]to see good smoke show,otherwise add bunker C fuel and then it will smoke no doubt:rof

OH,don't forget to cry about how clean your diesel engine runs there ya treehugger:D:drink

The best way to know if it is smoking is to... drive at night and when the car behind you is following to close, then stomp it to the floor and look out your passenger side mirror and watch the smoke roll out the exhaust in the view of their headlights! I do it just for hell of it.

stop worrying man,some just don't smoke.......how old is your PPE??I noticed that every time I updated the tuner over the internet I had less smoke[with the old tuner I had]....Perhaps they made changes due to tunes?I wouldn't know,just throwing it out there..

It might be overboosted. A sep sensor reading is the only way to tell, if the MAP sensor is bad (melted) then it will tell a perfect, untraceable, lie.
