The tuner should give you the fuel adjustment you want to blow smoke. You do know that all you will accomplish is wasted fuel and angering most people on the road don't you.

Who would deliberately pollute the air and offend people? Do want to get diesel banned like all the truck hating environazi's want?

Well I usually try to be positive, but people that set up their diesel pickups to roll smoke piss me off. Not only does it dirty the air unnecessarily, but it is wasteful and looks childish. Also there is nothing that sounds worse than a straight pipe on a diesel. Look at me, look at me, some of these diesel mods and childish owners make me sick. Remember my opinion and your mileage may vary........The next guy that rolls smoke at me at a stop light will be risking an ass whooping.

I am NOT anti-diesel in any way and actually would like to own one but I know that Clowns that over modify their diesels with tuners and other high performance mods are in for a lot of really expensive engine repairs in the near future. Heck it is hard enough to keep an unmodified diesel on the road these days.

@ Full_of, not anti-diesel here either, but I might be anti-stupid.

Rolling Coal....not sure why this is the craze but it is. When a modified diesel "rolls coal" is it un-burnt fuel...nothing more. The engine is flooded with diesel not allowing the heat to convert the fuel into energy resulting in wasted energy. The idea of adding a tuner is just that....TUNING!! The best "tune" you can achieve is when the engine burns all of the fuel resulting into the most energy possible. If you have a street truck that "rolls coal" through out the power curve then your engine isn't tuned correctly. On top of that....an incorrectly tuned engine is HORRIBLE for the injectors which can be expensive to replace at over $300 each!! What you want to accomplish when you mash the throttle is a brief period (1 - 2 seconds) of smoke then clear exhaust after that. If you want to "roll coal" and F**K UP your expensive engine components then have at it....but you'll have more enjoyment (and money) if you tune your engine correctly!
