Hate to be "that guy"
« on: December 19, 2018, 05:58:14 pm »
Hi all, thank you for letting me join you're forum. I picked up a 84 Rabbit with a 1.6 swap and my plan is to turn it into a cruiser and a show car. I go to a huge Volkswagen meet in NY in May and they have a smoke competition. I was wondering the easiest way to make my little rabbit into a "coal roller" I understand that black smoke means unburnt fuel and decreased MPG. But i really would like to win the competition this year and help would be appreciate it!

Thanks in advance.

I can't imagine wanting to enter or much less win a stupidity contest.  That type of stupidity gives diesels and diesel owner's a bad reputation, wastes fuel, potentially damages your engine (overly high EGT's), damages the environment for no good purpose, and threatens the health and well-being of those in the vicinity.  That makes smoking cigarettes look smart.

All true, but it is nice to have a riposte to those idiot tailgaters. Enjoy those PM10's!
