    He may have a compression brake system, like semi tractors do.

    geo8rge, Most likely that truck owner has a high performance chip to modify engine performance. I had one in my Ford for towing, but it never smoked badly.

    I'd much rather get "dusted" by the diesel smoke than hit with a mirror. On the other hand, some of his passes were a bit close.

    I posted a similar post a few days ago & some guy and I will try to quote him as close as I recall, but he said "Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa quit being such a crybaby you environ-MENTALIST,I love all diesels". And I said You don't have to be an environ-MENTALIST to desire clean diesel, If Volkswagon can do it why can't we, the once most brilliant innovative country in the world.

    yes, google "smoke switch"

    The engine doesn't change note when the smoke starts, it's pretty clear it's a chip, not a poorly tuned motor.
