hey guys i know its out there, but i cant find it, i just bought 98.5 and it doesnt smoke at all. I put the stack on from my 94 that smoked like a freight train and i feel like a poser with stacks that dont smoke. so what do i have to do to this thing to make it smoke. I dont need to have crazy power i just want it to shoot some black when i want it to. i want to get the edge ez out of the for sale section but i dont if it doesnt smoke at all. i love the truck and dont have the money to spend for a fass and turbos and stuff. its already got gauges and exhaust but i dont know how to get it to smoke. any help is greatly apriciated. thanks, steve

Now don't get me wrong I'm not dissing anyone on here at all, i'm just saying my two cents, why does everyone cream their jeans when they buy a diesel and chip the sh** out of it just to see money and engine life poor out the exhaust pipe?? I just recently purchased the 24V i have now and everyone i have talked to has asked me if it has a chip or if i'm going to buy a chip, NO i will not buy a chip nor will i ever buy a truck that has had a chip in it. I'm not saying i don't like seeing guys roal coal and hell my screen name is blowincoal but still, you don't need to pour the soot from the tail pipe to have a nice truck, my 24V doesn't smoke a bit when i get on it and i love it, tells me i'm burning my fuel and everyhting is running right, i'm just wondering why everyone needs to see black smoke??

A superchips would be a decent programmer for you. I had one and it smoked pretty good from a dead stop. 70 hp gain also. You can find them used for $200 all day long.

the goal is not to have smoke pouring all the time...the goal is to balance the air and fuel so that it clears up when the turbo kicks in...my truck can pour out smoke like theres a mountain of tires burining in the exhasut pipe and ive still been getting 17 or so in stop and go city driving, but smoke clears up when the turbo kicks in

I have a superchips on my 02 and it will smoke, and I gained a solid 3 MPG. Paid less than $500 for it new.

Hey congrats on the new truck. I know you said you don't have the money for a FASS right now, but I'm telling you straight up, if that lift pump is weak(and is on the verge of going out) you go putting a Comp or Adrenalin on there, the VP44 isn't gonna like running out of fuel pressure. I put a Comp on mine, and I could drain my fuel pressure to 0 psi(had a Fuel pressure guage, but I was all about the smoke..so I never lifted..hah) Needless to say, I purchased my first VP44 soon after. My buddy has the Superchips programmer in his otherwise all stock '01, and it will lay a decent cloud. Definitely not making the road disappear though. But he hasn't had to replace the VP44 yet at least.

BTW..those VP44's you're looking anywhere from $1100(for SO) and 1800 or so(for HRVP 44)
Hope this helps out in anyway, and enjoy the truck!

You need a pusher pump, you can get a holly blue pretty cheap and still leave your lift pump on there.I would do that frist.Smarty and injectors smokes bad.the adrenaline smokes as bad but is more of a gray haze on my truck

i agree with 5shifter. iwhen i first chiped my truck it was a superchip and it made a big difference. then i stacked and blew out my lift pump twice in 4 days and luckily didnt harm the vp. needless to say i have a fass now. in other words just like 5shifter said the superchip is prob the best chip you can get for a stock truck.
