Issues with DPF delete
So I decided to do a DPF delete. I have an SCT Xcal3 and had a delete pipe installed into the remaining factory exhaust. I decided to have a shop install the delete pipe after looking at the rusty bolts. The issues started with the sensor closest to the rear of the exhaust not coming out of the factory cat. I think it is an EGT sensor.
So when I picked up the truck with 3 of 4 sensors installed, I went to load the delete tune into the truck. I got a unsupported, or something, message.
Then my truck would not even turn over. The exhaust shop guy, who I have known for 20 years, said he started it right up and drove it out of the shop. I spent the next 2 hours on the phone with SCT updating and troubleshooting trying several failed attempts to program the truck and the tuner could not program the truck. We finally got the tuner to work and the truck to start, with a stock level, custom tune that eliminates the need for the EGT sensor. It also is running with a high idle. Anyone else had this issue? I plan to get a new sensor tomorrow.
One important tidbit. I had and Edge Jw/attitude hooked up to the truck most of this time. Prior to the last time we were finally able to program the truck I disconnected the Edge. I am not sure if this was preventing the SCT from working or not. I kept the Edge at stock truck settings. I wanted to leave it connected to use for the gauges and as a turbo timer. Is this doable?
