Hi there,

A tune is always a good idea, what oil are you using? For your car you can use a mineral oil, you can try a 20W-50 this may help the smoking issue.

All u have to do is use chevron with techron gasoline (regular is ok) and add techson fuel additive for a quick response, is what I did and in a matter of a few miles the hesitation was gone. Ram
