Acting different latley

Hey guys, I have been noticing changes in the way my truck has been running latley... Running the 275 tune, I am seeing more smoke than normal, engine seems a little louder and also I am seeing some minor surging every so often. Wondering if the warmer temps and summer fuel is causing this effect.. Anyone else seeing this? I will try re-loading the tune tomorrow, although I do it quite often already.
Thanks,

Shaune

Where are you located?
I think a couple have mentioned more smoke recently, fuel can be the cause all of the winter diesel is probably out of the tanks by now, also the thinner warmer air may be contributing to this as well.

Its normal. No more winter blend diesel, and the warmer temps will do it.

Try changing your fuel filters as well. But I believe that colton is right.

Located in Alberta, Canada, I just did my fuels and oil last week.... No loss in power, perhaps feels stronger also mileage is looking better than last week... Must be the fuel.
Thanks.

Yup sounds like fuel and im sure up there it takes a bit longer for the winter blend to be out of the system.

I'm sure the 310 will be released in the near future.
I highly suggest buying this tune.
There is SOOOO much improvement, that you won't believe it.

How are the boost levels on the 310? sounds like something I want but I don't want any "new" problems!! I'm running the 275V2 and it surges as always and the V3 is even wose!! and seeing boost levels of 50 kinda scare me!!
