My Dodge 5.9 has only received minor “in my opinion” moods but for MPG’s only. I have chipped it and put a 5” legal exhaust on and Inner cooler moods. You give it air it will increase your HP. If I get on it, it will smoke but not my gig!. From FL to TN and back with this load I got 18.8 GPM. Around town I get no less than 22 per. This is with doing the math and not the meter on the dash. I can live with that!!!

Mine will do the same thing until the turbo catches up, then it clears up nicely

remove all semblance of any kind of muffler.

The new stock diesels have very little odor- also due to low sulfur fuel
mandated now days.

I had a K1500 Blazer Detriot diesel way back in the late 80s. That puppy
would pull but it also smelled bad and smoked when I had my foot in it.

Nice truck.
When we switched from a gas 1500 truck to the Cummins diesel Dodge 2500, our first tow DW said "we are never getting rid of this truck! It is worth every penny we payed for it. We will never tow with gasoline again!!!"

After the great tow today with my 2.8, can't wait to try a 3.0 in a Ram 1500.

my ford 6.4 is a smoker but not in a good way. She likes to throw tons of white smoke when in regen in cold damp weather. I can smoke anyone out during that time. hopefully this last trip to the dealership fixed that problem.... won't know until its cold and rainy again.
