Angry Smoking to much for liking

So my truck (in my sig) smokes to much for me. I hate getting on it and waiting for my turbo to spool up and smoking out two lanes. Maybe I'm to heavy footed? I want to change my turbo to clean this garbage up. I want to stay with stock injectors. What are your suggestions for a turbo? Wide open ipthere is a thick haze behind me and I'm not liking it. Thank for the help ahead of time!

I don't see in your sig that you have egr delete installed. Intake could be pluging up with soot causing less airflow especially at rear cylinders causing excess smoke. Mine smokes with x street and srl but not a solid cloud..

Re: Smoking to much for liking

I cruise at 65 in 5th gear at about 550. Wide open I maybe hit 1100 much very rarely. And I don't have a egr delete. Want to do that with my studs but don't have the money. Just clean my egr valve maybe?

Re: Smoking to much for liking

You can try cleaning the egr valve or atleast take a look at it. what kind of boost numbers are you running? with your mods unless you are really lugging it down(manual trans) shouldnt smoke like mgeistman profile pic.

What tune are you running, on a wot what are egts and boost? Have you emailed Eric about it? I'm sure he can help you with the tune.
I've been hearing great things about the durastroke turbos.
