Here recently my truck started smokin more. The only thing thats on my truck currently is a quad boost fooler and a afe stage 3. The smoke is black which i know is just unburnt fuel but i can hammer down on it and see a black smoke trail and before it wouldnt smoke at all. Ive heard that when your turbo starts to go it starts smokin. Thanks in advance

Black smoke is usually a sign of injector wear. When the nozzles wear they don't atomize as well so more unburnt fuel. Do you run any conditioner?

I suppose you could say the turbo is going and the engine is not getting as much air.

Where is you boost when you are smoking? If you have good boost then I would not suggest it is the turbo...
