EGR Cycle ???

How often should you switch to a lower tune that cycles the EGR? I've been running the 210 since i tuned it and my egr has never cycled, and i watched the egr % gauge and it has never moved from 0. I may have the egr off tunes i don't know, i am level 2. I should have the egr on in my lower tunes never tried yet but just seeing how often i should cycle the egr. Thanks

I believe mine does with the 210, my exhaust note changes when the truck is just idling, I figured it was the egr cycling.

ya the 210 should cycle the egr but mine does not and i know that spartan has egr off tunes under 250 and maybe i got them. I will load the 150 sometime when it warms up and see if it cycles then.

I think Jeff said in an old post that you should tune down to something under 210 once every month or 2. I just went to the 175 yesterday, but I don't do this very often. Maybe every 3 months for a day or 2. I hate changing tunes once the transmission has finally "learned" to shift.

I run 250 all the time, and it only bumps open at idle, and its only for less than a second. Almost impossible to notice unless I'm hooking up my trailer.

What I have done in the past is set up the one screen on the dashdaq that makes an x-y line graph and make it only record the egr%. Also set up chart time to be like 5 minutes (you can see 5 minutes worth of data on one screen). glance at it on occasion and you'll see the spikes in the graph when the egr is working and for how long... (I'm a statistics geek from way back)

Trying not to hijack here, but still staying close to OP's topic...

Could a fella rig up a switch to manually cycle the egr valve? Similar to the way guys make smoke switches for their turbos...

Just trying to think of a way to exercise the valve without having to change tunes...

I STILL can't figure out where to monitor the EGR on the Dash Daq. I have looked everywhere. Can anyone post a step by step of where to find it or how to set it up?
I wish there was a manual or tutorial on the the Dash Daq for dummies like me!

touch ANY gauge or info window on the dashdaq and the info for that gauge will be shown. touch the spot at the top where the label for the gauge is, then a menu will pop up. Scroll to COMMANDED EGR. They are listed alphabetically. Then SAVE. Then SAVE again... That should take you back to the gauge screen. (I think... without it in front of me, its tough to remember)

Oh, minimum should be 0 and max should be 100 (%)
