spartan 150...

Hey does anybody run the spartan 150 dpf on tune??
I was wondering if this is a tune that is ok to run on all the time??
Ive head mine on for about a week and just yesterday i got a "pull over safley now" light on my dash and the damn truck just shut off and would start!!
i resetted it to the stock tune and she fires right up and drives fine.
I was wondering maybe if i dd on that tune it was clogging the dpf and sensors or was it something else??
thx

Im assuming this occured during a regen cycle? I had this happen to me a couple times when I was running a bully dog pmt. I believe its due to egts being out of acceptable range. Im not sure but I think it can be caused by a bad DPF which seems to be a pretty common problem.

Yes, but it could just be needing a regen. However it cannot regen if egts are above a certain level. Tuning raises egts enough that during driving, it can be "out of acceptable range".

No i didnt get the codes was my first reaction was to put this **** back to stock as quickly as possible!! lol
So the best idea is prolly not to use the 150 as a DD tune.

I had the same problem with all the Spartan tunes with the regen on. I just put my truck back to stock for now.

I have personally never ran a DPF-on tune from anyone on my truck but I have had several customers run the Spartan 150 tune for a week or more until they have the time to install there delete pipe and I have never heard any issues. You may see an increase in regeneration cycles per tank of fuel due to the increased soot load. Typically the "please pull over safely!" message is a result of a bad DPF Tempurature Sensor.

i had this problem but it happened after i detuned from the 150 to stock. when it was stock it drove bad and said doc temp high during regen after it decided to shut down. Once it decided to start i quickly went home to return to the 150 tune.
