The smoke must be different from truck to truck. Mine hardly smokes at all even on performance settings (never tried extreme). Maybe after I get rid of the kitty and install my stainless 4" sitting in my garage!!):h

StephenDizzle,

That's pretty typical for Superchips, it really means your getting full combustion from the fuel you are burning! As cool as a lot of smoke is it is actually wasted unburnt fuel.

I talked to Brian @ Superchips a little over a week ago and he informed me that they should have the tire recalibration update and the speed limiter eliminator update released within 2 weeks. That would mean we are still looking at another week from now. That is if he was telling me the truth.... lol!

Superchip!

I rode in a truck with the Superchip installed and it had the update for the tire size. The power was very impressive and there was very little black smoke. The SEM (shift energy managment) still worked and the trans was able to adapt at the low setting. There was very little black smoke and it was a easy, trouble free install.

The truck was a 2006 CCSB LBZ/Allison. I may have to get one for my truck. Just wanted to provide another opinion.

my truck with my superchip on there didnt smoke for nothin but when i installed a new airaid intake stage 2 thats all my truck does now is smoke and smoke and smoke like crazy, i love it, but also iam down here at school and one guy has a 06 duramax just like mine but its blue with the lly motor and he has the PPE (new Chip) and he told me that he leaves his chip wide open all the time, isnt that a 225hp and about 390 ft, can a stock tranny hold that. i mean i rode in it and it ran good, but over time does he need to be worried about it,

If you are smoking more now with the intake installed you are flowing LESS air. Smoke = lack of air

so in a nutshell the intake is doing you no good

or its pissing off your trucks MAF and getting its calibration all wonky.

Or you have other issues with the truck and this is coincidental.........
