This is an interesting thread. Can someone explain how the tune is resulting in a clogged DPF?
There is a sensor that detects soot build up. Once a level is reached, the truck regenerates the DPF.
What is different with a tuned truck that causes a DPF failure? Are you saying that the sensor is not sensing the soot because of some reason? Help me understand.
As far as tunes resulting in more soot, I think that really is dependent on the actual tuner/programming, correct? Some people run tunes (DPF off) resulting in lots of black smoke (wasted fuel). Others have clean tunes. Banks is adamant that they have programs that don't result in more regens (DPF on). In fact, one thread on here has experience from a user.
I am just curious...because honestly....I like cleaner air.
