Potential EGR Valve issue with Spartan V2 Tunes

There are several of us over on the spartan forum who are seeing issues with their EGR not cycling since updating to the V2 spartan tunes. The parameter to watch is Commanded EGR. Post up details about your truck and if your EGR valve is cycling with the new V2 tunes.

Note that this is not all trucks with V2. There are also trucks with the V2 update that do not have the issue. I would love to blame it on the EGR valve, but none of these guys seem to be throwing codes. Thanks for the replies.

the 250 should cycle while idling and i think the 210 is the same way. All the other lower tunes should cycle all the time but mine doesnt cycle at any time on any tunes.

I've had the 250 V2 loaded ever since it first came out and I can here mine cycling at Idle. Always does it whenever it's sitting for a few minutes. Have never had any issues with it. Once my warranty is up I'm doing the EGR delete. Still have another 3 years though.

check the monitor and make sure its openeing because mine sounds like its cycling but the dashdaq shows its not.

Ok guys. Over at the Spartan forum we have pinpointed the problem and come up with a workaround for getting your EGR to cycle. The problem here seems to be with people with the new v2 update who do not have their EGT sensors plugged into their exhaust. The workaround here is to pull your EGT sensors out of your stock exhaust and plug them into the plugs underneath and tie them up out of the way. Several of us have tried this and within a few minutes of having the sensors plugged back in our EGR's starting cycling. Post up if this works for your truck!

Do you not have the bungs for the EGT sensors to screw back into the delete pipe? I didn't do a full system when I replaced my DPF/DOC so I have bungs that I can screw my EGT sensors back in. I guess maybe some of the Full Delete series pipes don't have bungs for the sensors???
