How long can you run a dpf with no regens?

I got my tuner today, but my delete pipe won't be here until Friday...I will only put 75-100 miles max...also what is a good all around tune for daily driving? And can I just plug in my xrt pro when I want and change stuff and then plug my scangauge 2 back in? Besides when it's loading the power levels...

Thanks guys!

Are you trying to run a no dpf tune with the dpf still on? Thats what it sounds like to me so dont do that. You can run the dpf on tunes but i never liked those because the egts ran pretty hot when i tried it out on my truck. Just wait for the delete pipe. But for daily driving i run on wild on the hot dam settings. Works best for me but just try them all and see.

Yes, no dpf tune with dpf on, ok I'll wait for the pipe. Also when is it safe to remove the xrt pro? Anytime as long as its not loading a tune it should be ok I would think...

Yup when its done loading you can remove it and plug in a different gauge setup you have. I have a minimaxx but the tune loading process should be the same and it tells you when its done and safe to start the truck and disconnect the tuner. Then when you want to tune it again just plug it back in and change your settings.

You should be fine with the DPF On tunes for that amount of time.

As long as it's not uploading a tune, you can safely remove the XRT. I would personally make sure it's not actively reading or writing before removing myself.

I thought about that too, so to upload the tune I plug it in and leave the key off? Or engine running? And then let the xrt pro load the tunes...Not real clear on that part....?? Anyone have a step by step?

Plug it in with key off and then turn the key on. Xrt should power up and then select what you want to do and what tune to load and follow on screen intructions. Itll have you cycle the key once or twice throughout the install but it tells you everything to do every step of the way. Its very self explanatory once you plug it in. You may need to update it with the latest software updates from H&S's website by going here H&S Automatic Updater - H&S Performance

I would update it right away before doing any tuning. Tuner could have been on the shelf a while...etc, so update it. Plug the tuner in, it will prolly turn on right away because there is always power to the obdII port. Follow on screen instructions exactly and you will have no issues. When it says go ahead and start the truck, that is when the tuner is done doing its thing
