dashdaq showed up yesterday.....
so now the questions really begin. i already spoke to mick at spartan today to get the vin license reset and sent him all the info from the DD....how long does something like that normally take? i understand that he has to contact the previous owner but that could take forever (potentially). i also sent him the offroad disclaimer form via fax and i also emailed him a scanned version. hopeully that gets the point across that i want this thing working tomorrow.
now on to the questions.....i have had the thing plugged in all day today just to get acclimated with its functions. at least the ones that i can access at this point. i must say, i am very impressed with all of the functions and parameters you can view on it. but i need to know what range some of the reading should be in. for example,
EP...i assume is exhaust pressure. it is all the way up to 18lbs at idle. and when i hump the skinny, it beeps at me. i noticed the alarm is set at 150lbs. should there really be that much exhaust pressure? low hanging fruit makes me believe that the filter might be clogged, as it has been going into regen quite often here lately. no problem there though, the filter will be on a shelf in my garage by the end of the week. but under normal circumstances, what range should the EP be?
EGTs.....seem to be OK at idle but with just a little persuasion on the skinny, it jumps right up to 1000. and if i dump it and hold it, it will hit 1400-1500 in just a few seconds. about the time it gets that hot, the DD beeps at me to let me know the exhaust pressure is getting too high.
TFT....what is a safe range for the tranny blood? looks to me like it is hanging around the 175 range.....but keep in mind that we have been having 98-100 degree weather here in houston with a 500% relative humidity.....lol. just dont know what the acceptable ranges are.
keep in mind that this is all on a BONE stock truck with the exception of a filter back banks monster exhaust. does any of this make any sense??
thanks for your input fellas.
