Default Dunks decarb questions

I'm gong the dunks decarb method on my 02 optimax's right now exactly as how dunks said to. Thing is I'm not getting hardly any smoke out of the motors. According to videos and stories I've seen I should have enough smoke to make someone call the fire Department. Is it something to worry about or are my motors cleaner than I thought?

I honestly do not think Opti’s need it done as they run extremely clean. I’ve done Dunk’s method on various carb’d and, if I can remember correctly, even my previous Yammy HPDI’s and quite a bit of smoke came out.

My starboard motor had a little more smoke but nothing extreme. When I troll I try to equalize by running both motors an equal amount of time, but it looks like I've got around 15 hours more on the starboard, so that one may have a little more carb. Guess I just won't sweat it and go boating.
