I heard a turbo delete was the best thing for some smoke. You can control it with your pedal the harder you push it the more smoke, push the pedal easy and you'll have light smoke.

But you better have some extra cash for fuel because your mileage won't be very good, smoke is dollars out the tail pipe.

Smoke = power(wasted to the atmosphere), I unhooked one of my I/C boots a while back and I could make plenty of smoke. I could also make some crazy EGT's in neutral!

In all seriousness, tuning for more smoke is exactly that- tuning for more smoke. Smoke does not equal power.

Are you trying to slowly kill your engine ooorrrrrrrrr what? More smoke just means more money wasted, and lost power since you'll be flooding the turbo more. I tuned my truck to smoke less and it runs much better than when it did smoke.

If you still want it to smoke, good luck, nobody is gonna help you give diesels an even worse rep.

Here is what you can do if want a lot smoke.... 1st-buy a turbo delete kit. second-do an intercooler delete that should hep you out some. third-get some 5,000hp injectors, that should really flood your engine out. P.S. if you hate to do a turbo delete just rap your air filter up several wally-world sacks and that should do the trick just fine. after all of theese mods you will be spending about $1000 worth of diesel.
