edge juice and straight pipe +low fuel psi =no smoke?
Ok so I know that diesels can smoke and how they work and I dont do it to piss off people or to waste diesel fuel, I just want to smoke every now and then but I have a 99 24v with a built automatic trans.
I have edge juice with attitude on level 5, straight pipe, silencer ring removed(which does nothing but make it louder, i know and i love it) but when I mash down on the pedal taking off or just rolling down the highway to pass i have no smoke. I do however notice that my Fuel psi is dropping to around 3psi at WOT and I noticed it and dont mash the pedal anymore and have since ordered and Airdog pump. Am I not getting any smoke bcause i dont have enough fuel to make the correct hp and to smoke? I will be installing the airdog tuesday or wednseday so that will hopefully fix the fuel psi problem.. the vp44 pump was rebuilt at 88,000 miles and the truck has 155,000 on it.
Please let me know whats going on.. Thanks
