Welcome to the site.. I think you are in the wrong section....this is 24-valve powertrain related section

Check over in the 12-valve powertrain related section,..i am sure someone over there can help you out...

Your problem is the fuel screw. After you adjusted it you are dumping lots more fuel in at low boost than you should. Truck smokes at low rpms doesn't it? Try backing off the fuel screw some and see what happens.
