Sorry for the long post, please read through, i detailed what i could remember. I bought a 2000 pickup that already had an XZT+. I wanted some gauges to track fuel pressure, boost, and EGT and liked the XZT so much i figured i would check out the Quad gauge stuff. Liked the Scout and all the extra stuff on top of the normal gauges so i ordered the gauge, the EGT kit, fuel pressure kit, and pillar mount from Xtreme Diesel Performance back on about Dec 15. Both the Scout and XZT mount up to the data link in the truck. The Quad instructions state a triangle 3 pin but the truck data link is a flat 3 pin. The correct adapters came with the Scout and plugged right in.
Got everything installed, hooked up and mounted that week, go to start the truck and the fuel pressure and boost don't read. The boost reads 0 all the time and the fuel pressure would blip up to about 3-4psi intermittenly. Everything else seems to work including RPM, ECM voltage, EGT, load, Intake Air Temp, coolant temp, fuel temp, ect. The Scout was also stopping the XZT high idle (set to high idle after 2 min. until 140 degrees).
So i call up Quadzilla tech, work with Jeremy, who has been helpful to the best of his ability. He has me check the wiring, all good, check the voltage on the line from the fuel pressure transducer, it seems within spec. I updated the software on both the Scout and XZT and still no change. He asked if the IAT is reading, as if that is, then the boost should read from the ECM.
Finally a month from when i bought it, i pay to have it shipped to Quad so they can check it out. They have it for 5 weeks and adjusted some stuff. They are located in Texas and were waiting for a guy from a few hours north to come down to their shop so they could test the scout on his truck, apparently he was having a similar issue, idk? After 2 1/2 weeks of waiting for this person, i told them this is unacceptable, maybe i could post on here (thedieselgarage.com) and cumminsforum.com about my experience and see if Quad could pay someone to come there to test my stuff. Jeremy said the engineer had one more tune to put on the Scout, let him try that and he would get back to me Mon. No call Mon, but the Scout came back in the mail Tues. I called him and he says that it wasn't supposed to be shipped yet. This was 2 weeks ago, about 10 weeks since i bought it.
I plug the scout back in, turn the truck on and the fuel pressure now reads 6-7psi idling, will drop all the way to 0 when accelerating and sits at 1 when cruising. XZT high idle is working intermittenly. I believe this is not accurate or the truck wouldn't run. The boost still read 0 constantly. I call Jeremy and let him know, he says that's too bad, there's nothing more they can do, i should call who i bought it from and return it. I was floored by this because they gave up on their product but kind of happy as i might see resolution.
I call XDP and speak with Mike in cust. service who says they have another Scout in stock, last one (they have been discontinued), would i like to send mine back first or pay for another scout and then return the one i currently have when the other one arrives and they will refund me. I pay for the other one so i can test both.
I plug in the new Scout and brain and same thing, dammit! Trouble shot last night and got no good results. Tried the old and new Scout and brain without the XZT plugged in, unplugged everything to check connections. Disconnected both batteries to reset computers. All with no change. XZT high idle is also not working with the new unit.
Anyone have some ideas, suggestions, whatcha think? I believe the fuel pressure and boost are related. I have not tried a new transducer (the unit that read the fuel pressure at the VP via different banjo bolt, Jeremy couldn't get ahold of one. Is my truck computer bad, is this affecting other stuff? I don't really want to go with regular gauges and i have $150 tied up in the EGT and fuel press. kits that i'm sure cant be refunded. Would like to ditch XZT and Scout to go with Adrenaline i guess but this is all so messed up.
