Angry H&s egt issue.. Please help!

Alright guys today I Installed my dpf on my 11'. I'm running a mini max and I also have a s&b intake. I took the truck for a test drive to time the trans. When I got back to my house I noticed that my egts on the mini max was reading 2900 and wasn't budging.. Can somebody please help me out here. I don't even want to drive the truck with temps like that. Prior to the delete the temps would never go above 650 degrees I'm at a lost here. Also I can't run any of the tunes because it defuels to stock setting.

That's the default temp on your mini look at the source of your EGT sensor something is not rite in that section I have an XRT but I know guys with mini's that have had that issue are you running one of the Exhaust EGT sensors in the block off plate like they say you can do ?? Once your source is rite you will see the correct EGT and once your up and running you will see about 700-800 cruising on the freeways and 1150-1300 at WOT. PS 2900 is not possible the melting point for aluminum is like 1800 haha your truck would not be running your ok to drive bud its just a sensor hiccup

Moral of the story the Mini has no source to read your EGTs because all the sensors are out of your exhaust and you unplugged all the goodies for your EGR so it defaults to 2900 degrees I assure you, you're fine once you do an EGR delete kit or you put block off plates in you will take one of your EGT sensors out of your exhaust and stick it in your block off plate and then plug it in the plug were the temp sensor on the cross over pipe for your EGR went and then adjust the source on the Mini and your EGTs will read correct.

Go into the menu and set the defuel to H&S. It's probably set on stock. If you just unplug the sensor it will be trying to pick up something that is a false reading. If you get block off plates you will have to change the setting back.

doesn't matter if they're plugged in or not, the program rescales the temp reading to fool the ECM not to go into regen.

turn off pyro defuel and take the pyro reading off of the main screen

There's the problem. You should have removed the dpf from your truck, instead of installing one.

That block of kit is what everyone is talking about above.
It replaces the longer egr pipe that connects the egr to the manifold.

The plate with the bung goes on the manifold. This bung is where you put a temp sensor which you take out of your stock dpf.

Then follow the sensor cord that is connected to the short egr pipe which is connected under the air inlet and unplug.

This connector is where you now plug in the new sensor you installed in the block off plate.

This temp is now what will read on your pyro 1 gauge on your mini maxx
