Excessive smoke on Spartan 300 EL tune??
OK, just had my motor rebuilt, new up-pipes, brand new injectors, I'm EGR and DPF deleted. Before the rebuild it never blew any smoke on normal acceleration, only under 3/4 + throttle. Then after the rebuild and new stuff on the 300 LL tune it seemed the same as before. BUT I didn't like the LL tune we switched it back to 300hp EL tune and now even with the slightest throttle input it puts out a decent puff of smoke...very odd since it didn't before on the LL or EL tunes and now it doesn't on the LL tune but does on the EL tune. I downloaded the latest NEGR tunes from Spartan a month or so ago and they were running normal, then a hung injector caused an over-filled crankcase and then a runaway going down a county road. (those were favorite underwear) Anyway, do Spartans normally smoke a bit? it's fine at idle and fine when the boost builds but right on take off, even very light throttle it smokes a bit...I just want to make sure that I don't have injector issues or somehow a corrupted file caused injectors to malfunction and blow my motor in the first place???
