I have a sct livewire now and been running the highest canned tune. I have had good luck with it and getting pretty good mpg. Should I swap tuners and why?
How long does it take after taking a tuner off before it will regen? If it doesnt act up then I can keep both to play with :evil . But I cant take the risk of us selling his truck to someone and acting up because it isnt tuned. Does the edge juice with attuide have a dpf delete? I have one of them that i traded for some all weather mats that ill never use that i much rather trade then my sct.
If your buddy traded in his F250 with a gutted exhaust and without the tuner, you can bet the dealer will be contacting him before long. In my experience, with a mix of highway and street driving, I went through regen about once per tank. Driving around the dealership was may not have been enough use for the ECU to check the status of all the emissions components, but it won't be long before it does and the truck gets shut down. It may be the next time someone tries to crank the truck.
If the exhaust wasn't gutted, then tuning the truck back to stock before removal was the right move.
