Not so hard if you burst it once in a while. OTOH, if you are going to make it dump smoke all day long, sure. I use my smoke tune as a way to give someone the finger. Especially pedestrians who just run in front and expect me to stop on a dime. Those I toss black smoke at. Also irritating drivers.

Smoke switches on a 7.3 don't work. Grounding the wire on the 6 liter tells the ecm all kinds of stuff and confuses it to think it has all kinds of boost, kinda like a boost fooler but yet not. The only way you will get good smoke with a 7.3 is to just buy a chip. Watch the classified area there are always good deals. And most you can send and have reburned and get whatever tunes you want
