I don't think that's aimed at BMW drivers installing JBD's (or any other piggyback or remap for any diesel car for that matter).

But there's a whole subculture of diesel truck owners that install "smoke kits" that are primarily for creating epic amounts of diesel smoke. Oh yeah, and more power.


Because SMOKE IS POWER!!!

Suck it, bikers!

I agree with Thud. My roommate from College drives a diesel with tune and if he gets messed with he will smoke people out, but usually it's at a stoplight.

It is very dickish to dump that much smoke into the air.

I don't get the smoke thing. I'm all for more power/performance, but not at everyone else's expense.

Some people go for obnoxiously loud audio systems.... others go for obnoxious amounts of smoke.


Either way, it's just people craving attention.
