Black smoke indicates a rich condition that results from when you rev it the computer increases the fuel output and goes rich to provide good power under accelleration. It should blow a bit of black smoke if you are sitting still and blip the throttle.

A little black smoke at WOT is a good thing.:D Nothing to worry about. Now WHITE smoke means trouble...
