I think it's wasting fuel, and performance will lack because it's not getting fully burned.

Like the old saying goes, there's a time and place for everything. I believe the folks at the track would appreciate a good smoke show versus the general public.

Look at it like this, people on the street looking for a challenge would correlate smoke with power. How cool would it be for you to knock their nuts into the dirt with very little to no smoke?

well that is a very good point there bad munky. Kind of like a sleeper. I like that idea but i also like to be able to bellow a cloud into the car on the side of me that has their windows down and is full of trash talkin thugs. Now that is FUN! But back to your comment, gale banks just did a 1,000 HP duramax diesel that runs a low 9 sec (maybe a high 8) 1/4 mile with zero smoke. I wish i could have a button in my truck that would say SMOKE ON. Kinda like an airshow stunt pilot. LOL

I read the same article about G/B... that's what kind of steered me into this decision.

A sleeper diesel would rock.... unfornutely, any enthusiast would be able to tell by your exhaust tone that something just isn't quite right...lol

A smoke button would be cool.

It's a shame we couldn't do flame throwers like gassers... imagine that coming out of dual stacks.

wait....ford did it for the '08 super duty N/M.

The average person that doesn't know anything about diesels think your truck is running bad when you smoke out an intersection. Most of the kids also laugh when they see a truck blowing smoke thinking its broken

Smoke is cool to look at. It may be unburned fuel but look at diesel trucks running in the 11's and 12's. They smoke a crazy amount

wait? I do remember reading that he used NOS. I have a question for the more informed. How does NOS reduce EGT 's and how does it mask smoke? That topic is fascinating to me since i always thought that it made gassers run hot and detonate.

nitrous is an oxidizer so it just lets you burn more fuel, if you have unburnt fuel causing smoke the nitrous will help burn it by adding the extra oxygen needed, the smoke comes from too much fuel for the oxygen or air supply, nitrous doesn,t cause deto but too much of a shot with out proper fuel octane and timing retard will cause deto. every motor has its limits so if you add to much fuel and oxygen weather it is forced induction or nitrous with out lowering compression, running better fuel and or retarding timing you will deto.nitrous running the right mixture will lower egt,s as it lowers your charge air temp.

Nitrous does not mask or hide smoke, it creates a more efficient burn in the combustion chamber therefore eliminating smoke.

BTW, Banks has ran in the 7's with a Duramax, and ran 217 mph with a Cummins, both with no smoke.

The only smoke I want to see out my truck is tire smoke.
