It was the coolest thing

Even that hot rod engine would only black smoke when you would hit it with load, and only for a split second.

It was part of our tuning process to watch for smoke. Some engines would smoke more than others, when picking up a heavy load, but it certainly was not ever desirable.

Engine life is really calculated by gallons of fuel burned; not mileage, or hours. Those high horsepower diesels I have built, or sold to customers easily had half the lifespan of a lower horsepower engine from the factory. Coal rolling pick-up truck engines are no different. You should see what the top of a piston looks like on an over-fueled diesel engine. It is not pretty, but hey, he got to smoke out everybody at the intersection.

Well, it can be tuned on the mechanical ones... But at least on a 12 valve 5.9 people are too lazy to grind the fuel plate properly.

That little puff is all there should ever be, when not in a show environment.

We all know it's bad for everything when a truck is vomiting black everywhere, and makes for a very shiny engine after it washes the cylinders out... I know a guy who used to roll coal... Stick shift 5.9 common rail... He'd start in 3rd or 4th at a stop light... Right up until he pooched his engine... He was running a smoke tune to begin with and then did that shit. I laughed when he told me his engine was done!

Coal rolling should only ever be a show piece for tracks/dynos if someone wants to do it, never on the streets.

I'm not so old or out of touch that I don't "get" why people roll coal... I know some people get off to it. I just hate the douchebags that do it at every intersection thinking it somehow makes people think they are a badass...

A little class solves most problems.

Well the average American doesn't own their car either. But I see what you're saying
True, the banks do, but the makers don't own them anymore.

You should always have a vehicle that doesn't require any electronic devices other than a battery.
