Who makes a smokeless tune?

I understand one tune might not run as good on anothers truck(no two machines are the exact same).

Matt from Gearhead is a good guy, but his tunes are just too smokey(white blue smoke) for stop and go traffic. It hardly shoots(if any at all) with the stock tune but the SRL, and SRL+ will give you a nice puff of white smoke once leaving the light normally. If I give it a good push(not floor it) then its thick black.

Im looking for a good tune that will cut back on some excess fuel down low..
Who would you recommend, I hear Eric but what is his contact info? Is this DI in houston, Texas?

Thanks in advance!

Re: Who makes a smokeless tune?

White smoke is an issue. Contact Matt, I gauruntee he can write you a less smokey tune. But remember, with these tunes dumping the fuel to the motor, and your torque converter locking up early, your going to have quite a bit if smoke until the turbo cleans it up. Good luck, and give Matt a call before you give him a chance to meet your needs.

Re: Who makes a smokeless tune?

I have a ton of tunes; from Matt, Eric, Vivian, Spartan, etc. Matt's are definitely the cleanest tunes I've ever ran. Eric and Vivian's tunes are equally smokey, and the Spartan tunes covered the side of my truck with black smoke.

If you have white or blue smoke, you have an issue.

I've had tons of different tunes from different tuners and Matt's were by far the cleanest... 7.3 though

Give him a call, he will get it worked out for you.
