I'm just not getting enough smoke out of my hookah. I have a KM, using Exotica coals, and Starbuzz tobacco. Am I doing something wrong? Tips for setup?

What kind of bowl are you using? How do you pack the shisha? Where do you place the coals?
I use a vortex bowl. Just sprinkle the shisha in until its just below the top of the bowl(so the foil doesn't quite touch the tobacco), and place two exoticas on opposite ends of the bowl. Smokes great with big clouds, esp starbuzz

Make sure you check the water level... also check the purge valve make sure you have a ball bearing in there. Make sure your hose is not loose and there are no leaks.

+1 to that. That's what I'd check first. Make sure your base, hose and bowl grommets are in good shape.

Pretty much as said above:

Make sure there are no air leaks, they make air mix up with smoke which means bad clouds.
Stem should be 1"-1,5" down into the wateer.
