Default Smoke switch

I bought a 06 F250 the other day and it had a smoke switch installed. I assumed it couldn’t be good for the truck however I bought the truck anyways. What is some bad things that can come of this? Is it simple to take off? My buddy’s thing it’s so cool I can smoke out a entire street but I could care less and care more about saving money not having to fix my truck. Thank you!

Basically it shuts off the turbo - NOT good for the engine IMHO

Yeah, that's just idiotic. Thought maybe they were pumping used oil into the exhaust, mighta gave that a try. You know to keep my exhaust from rusting out anymore. Got an 05 with stock exhaust which the muffler is going out on. The kids would've loved that. Lmao

That's awesome, As soon as I read that I saw me getting pulled over for using it. Guess that's my sign I'm too old to be doing stuff like that
