    :cry: I have somewhat of a problem with my 1999 ford f-250 diesel pickup truck, the thing will not smoke for nothing I put my foot to the floor but nothing. There is no chip in the truck's computer and the only thing that was done to it that I can see is a K&N air filter? Could someone help me out please becuase I am putting on stacks and with is stack without having smoke porring out them!

    While it looks cool, I wouldnt really be complaining if your truck doesnt smoke black, because its wasted fuel.

    Is your truck old enough to smoke?

    I agree, also smoking increases heart attacks by 400%.

    if you want it to smoke upgrade your injectors and get a tuner

    then put $3000 on the side for a new trans, bucause once you put theoversize injectors and computer tuner in it, you will blow the trans.

    K&N filter

    K&N filters in the stock air box is gonna cost you a turbo too. The airbox design is poor at best on the early and late 99"s.

    Ugh, where to start on a truck like that.........It would be fun to build it up with the other guys checkbook! With the trans included, I spend about $6500 doing mine.

    Thanks guys I know that if my truck does not smoke that I will save money but what if someone is driving really close to your truck and if you slam on your brakes that the person would hit you, would you want them to figure out that you do not tailgate with me.

    My friend has an 02 stroker with a chip and it only smokes if you roll into the throttle gently while in over drive. Basically anytime there is low boost he can get a little puff. However if he just stands on it there is no smoke like you are saying you want.

    a few of my buddies had older cummins' with stacks that smogged pretty bad, i really dont care for it because then anything you tow or have in the bed gets saturated with soot. also i dont think my customers want to see my truck lugging and blowing smoke around town or on their lots. i do like it at truck pulls though
