    Nope not really. The box puts more fuel in so you get more smoke. Best way to stop the smoke is to remove the box Or maybe a remap.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    shot of redex to make sure everything's clean, try rolling on the power rather than snapping it open.

    Mine smokes rather embarrassingly too, I've found i get a lot less smoke when using top quality Diesel such as Shell V-power.

    It shouldnt smoke black, unburned fuel results in grey smoke... I've fitted my box about a month ago and everything is as should be - no smoking whatsoever.
