Spartan question

Does anyone know if the regen can still be on after the deletes? Can u turn the regen on and off with a spartan after deletes, and if so how do you do that?

Deletes are just that. Deletes.

Regeneration is disabled, and the particulate filter will clog if left in place, especially in a racing application as the tuner was intended for.

spartan question

My truck has already been deleted (egr and dpf). I have a problem with it blowing blue smoke every 10 start ups or so. I had another post about the problem and I had a reply that said his truck done the same thing. He said he finally fixed his when he found out his regen was still turned to on. I couldn't find any setting on my spartan that I could change if the regen was off or on.

If your EGR isn't on the truck and the check engine light is NOT on, the emissions system has been disabled and you are running a race/off road tune - so the truck won't regenerate.

I have seen most deleted trucks smoke a little white/blue during warmup, before fully warmed up - especially when it's cool outside.

Scroll through your tunes, at the top of each tune it says its power rating and dpf on, keep scrolling until it starts saying power rating and dpf off

spartan question

Thanks i appreciate it. That what i asked in the other post if it might be normal and I didn't get any response. It runs great and I haven't noticed it doing anything but the blue smoke. It only does it when the truck is cold and only every so often. The blue smoke only lasts for about 30 seconds to a minute and clears up. I was worried that I may have a problem. I checked the oil level and it is about a 1/2 inch above max full. The coolant level always stays normal. Thanks for the help again.

I am running the 275 tune with high lock. I have only tried the 275, 250, and 210. I deleted the truck before I put the spartan on it. I have never used the dpf on tunes.

Any idea what it could be? Like I said earlier it runs great and no signs of any other problems besides the blue smoke every 10 start ups or so. I don't really thinks its head gaskets or nothing like that. It doesn't use any coolant or oil. I have only had the truck about two months. If anything the oil level is a little above the max full about a 1/2 inch.

Possibly an injector? Don't panic I'm no mechanic just taking a shot in the dark. How bad is the smoke. When really cold mine will have a minimal haze on warmup. If its smoking any more then a small haze if say there's an issue
