DashDaq XL vs Spartan Phalanx

1) Can the DashDaq XL be uploaded (converted) to a Spartan Phalanx???

2) When using a DPF delete tune, can you simply unplug the DPF or does it have to be removed. I understand the benefits of replacing the DPF with a delete pipe, just curious if it is mandatory.

3) Currently I have continuous problems with my exhaust sensors, I've had one or more replaced 3 times. It is my understanding that a delete pipe has bungs for all these sensors to stay in place....so will I continue to have sensor probs??? (I have until recently been running a superchips flashpaq and thought maybe it was the culprit for the sensor probs)

4) Last but not least...I don't want to loose (or rather would like to improve) the trucks reliability! Out of the two years I've owned my truck, all the probs have been centered around the exhaust system. I love the hp and tq numbers Spartan can produce but are they safe and reliable? If removal of my DPF will not fix my probs, would a more economical programmer such as the Evolution be a safer alternative for my engine?

Thanks

I have the Dash Daq XL with my Spartan. With the "Off Road Only" tunes, the DPF must be removed. Spartan comes with tunes that can be used with the DPF still in place. The delete tunes have given many trouble-free miles to a lot of people. I have seen several that have run the 250 and even the 275 tunes for 40'000+ miles trouble-free. Just as if your truck was stock, it all depends on the weight of your foot.

So are the DashDaq and Spartan two different parts? I ask because I can get my hands on a DashDaq for 200 bucks and thought if it could be programmed with the Spartan tunes, I might save a few bucks.

Thanks for the other info.

You have to use a delete pipe and the sensors

well, hopefully the superchips flashpaq was what was burning up my sensors so that the problem is solved and I don't burn up anymore with the Spartan. Thanks fellas for the input

The dpf sensors do not need be in the the pipe when you do the delete. They just need to be plugged in to the harness.
