There is a late-model Dodge truck locally that has a vinyl decal on the rear window that says: "Cummins - Built to Choke Powerstroke". It is in BIG letters and I have seen it a few times recently (The really funny thing is that when he steps on the accelerator, a BIG plume of black smoke literally chokes everyone. He must have some power adder that causes more fuel to be put into the engine than is required).

I can't let this go unanswered so I am asking for your help in rebutting. I pledge to install BIGGER vinyl letters on the rear window on my 2000 F350 crewcab dually PSD if we can come up with a even snappier line.

How 'bout some help here guys?? Our honor is at stake and the gauntlet has hit me in the face.

"Torque vs Smoke: Thank God it's a FORD"

"8 of Power Strok'n better than Cummin with 6"
and last but not least
"Belt out the Power, quit Hummin' with Cummins"
Thanks it 4 now

I wouldn't get a sticker that touts non-smokiness of the PSD. The Cummins guy probably has an aftermarket chip, possibly propane as well. Check in his bed or underneath it (if you get a chance) and look for a propane tank. If he's got propane and you don't, it'll torch a PSD. Likewise, a PSD with propane will torch a stock Cummins.

Anyway, my PSD Excursion smokes like a bastard if I hammer it. I have a 330 HP chip in it. The smoking is characteristic of a diesel with any type of mod that increases the performance. You're right in that it's delivering more fuel, because the black smoke is unburnt fuel.

How 'bout simply, "Cummins - Built to Choke" if it's personal thing.

Or:
"Cummins - Built to Choke
Thank Ford for Power Stroke"
