Most guys here have trucks that smoke, but was not there goal. Make some power and smoke will come with it. Most of the diesel world is getting worried about EPA and there rules. Every time we blow smoke its just asking for more laws restricting our trucks.

I don`t know what part of the country your from but here on Long Island it seems the nanny stater environuts outnumber the sane folk.

Set the valves if you haven't, and back out the high idle screw flush. Make sure the throttle opens all the way. The tranny will put more power to the ground with more rpms.
