Many many many years ago I had a job. I would drive through Tampa on Nebraska ave to get to work. One rainy morning after a night of steady rain I was driving to work and just before downtown there was a bus stop. The building next to the bus stop had an awning that covered the sidewalk for a city block. There must have been 80-90 blacks standing under the awning waiting for buses to take them to the orange groves(yes back then, before the mexican hordes, blacks picked fruit). Well that being a bus stop meant the road was very inclined due to the heavy buses causing a huge deep puddle to form at the curb for most of the block. I was driving my 1959 Ford F250 4x4. When I got close I could see the light was green. I couldn't resist, pulled that ol truck down into 2nd gear and stomped the gas. A wall of water covered that sidewalk and everyone on it. When I checked my mirrors they were in the street yelling and cussing and flailing arms. I had to find a new route to work after that. Yes, I was a redneck asshole even back then.
Detuning a diesel engine to produce clouds of black smoke damages and shortens the life of the engine. It causes unusually high exhaust gas temps, and the unburnt diesel fuel greatly shortens the life of the catalytic converter, which can be very expensive to replace. I watched a F-250 rollin' coal... The cat was glowing white-hot.
Its normal to see a puff of black smoke from a turbo equipped diesel during hard acceleration from low RPMs - it takes a couple of seconds for the turbo to "spool up". But as the turbo catches up, the black smoke should disappear.
