Dumb question since gas prices are already high enough. But my question is how do i get my truck to blow more smoke. I've messed with the low boost fueling but I didn't notice anything.

All mods are in my sig.

Thats the problem, I adjust the low boost fueling to max and I get nothing. I could blow more smoke when I had my stock exhaust on. Would that cause any change since I have a larger exhaust.

I dont know why but with my truck i have to get the engine temp up to atleast 160 or 170 before it starts blowing smoke...

Yeah, the engine is breathing alittle better, so you have to add more fuel to make it smoke. My bully dog makes tons of smoke, never had an edge. A smoke switch is an easy way.. if you can get to work, but also throws the CEL light on and I dont like that light on...LOL

:agree2: My truck blows lots of smoke and I'm only running SW#5 with mild torque management. I never upgraded to the REVO software.

You make it just go to your local radioshack or something and get a switch some wire and connectors and a 10ohm resistor and your set...

knock on wood it seems to be doing fine.... BUT i drive like a grandpa with fuel prices being like they are and its also makes a REMARKABLE difference in MPG if you leave it up on 6 with response level of 5 and drive like a grandpa i see 19 in town pretty easily (hand calculated) but thats what slow starts and timing the stop lights, but if you do wana get on it ITS THERE and it sure does roll some coal.....but for your question the most my edge has recorded was a 2% slip and I actually got on it PRETTY hard then
