Hi, my accent also spews a little amount of smoke only on sudden bursts of the accelerator...its just a little bit more than before than the petes box...but nothing very alarming.

Hey autozoniac, here is a long term ownership review and a lot of other FAQ's about the tuning box:


PS: another reason why you see additional smoke is that youve never revved your car so much in normal mode! all diesels smoke on pedal to the metal

I too have a Pete's Box on my Merc and when i push the pedal to the metal there is some amount of smoke coming from the exhaust... This is purely becoz there is more amount of diesel being injected in the cylinder.. On normal driving there wud be no smoke..
Relax i have driven over 15000km with the box on and its not causing any damage to the car..

it's the air filter...you're burning more fuel, but the engine is starving of air, the very reason why a CAI filter is recommended.
Just to verify this statement - just run the car without the air filter for about 10-15 mins. Do it at night when the dust settles and see if there's any black smoke.
For people wondering how you can see black smoke at night - trust me, you'll see it even in the ORVMs.
