FICM Atlas 40 Tune

I had my FICM finally smoke the power board at 61K miles so I got the Atlas 40Hp tune from ficmfixer since I still had the original buzz flash in there.

I notice now on initial acceleration I get a little puff of black smoke. Are others seeing this with the Atlas tune?

I removed my banks tuner to rule it out contributing to the issue and it still lets out a light puff of black smoke on initial acceleration or if you're cruising and accelerate quickly you'll see another light puff of black smoke.

I've run higher settings than 40HP from the banks tuner and never saw a puff of black smoke on every acceleration that I see now.

Normal for the PHP Atlas 40 Tune?
