Smoking like a freight train is fine for the track/sled/dyno.. But if we want to keep driving performance diesels, we should all be striving to have very little on the street....

Still trying to get my smoke down on the street. The turbo rebuild helped, injectors and pump are probably next. It does clear out tailgaters though.

Smoke is dumb, this is why there are so many more regulations on diesels. You give the image they are dirty people are going to complain...and I like MPG's personaly. If you have a light haze coming out thats fine but closing down 2 lanes is stupid...

As little as possible. Even on the track it would be nice to see the higher performance guys try to ease up on the smoke.

For me, its somewhere between very little and light fog, more like light haze. It's a diesel after all. But I'm not looking for more than a slight puff from a stop or at the shift. Honestly, my current tune is a little too smokey fo my likes, and I'd be willing to give up a small amount of power for less smoke.

a little off the line or on a big hill with a heavy load or the track smoke is just wasted fuel power is one thing smoke is money going by by look at the banks race truck that is clean and running 7 sec 1/4's
