Hi,

What are peoples experiences of smoking on boost.. I've noticed that if you sit the throttle at around 2.5k for a second or two, and then bury the accelerator into the carpet I can see quite a bit of smoke coming out the back. (When travelling, not stationary)

Now I know there is overfuelling to throttle the engine up, but how much smoke is normal?

Just interested?

Thanks.
Phil.

A slight black/grey haze when flogging it is normal. Big thick clouds of smoke that hang in the air aren't.

Most people underestimate the amount of smoke that can be made and still pass the MOT.

When revved mine leaves black marks on the floor yet still passes the MOT.

That's OK then, If I rev mine really hard I get the black marks... but not thick clouds of smoke.. so thats cool..

Thanks.
