2012 Ram 2500 over heating with the H&S on
 
I have a 2012 ram 2500 lifted on 37's. I installed the H&S mini max, DPF delete, and did an intake. Ran great for a few months and just the other day it started overheating. The programmer then says defueling and deprograms itself to stock mode when reaching the high temp. Anyone hear of this happening? I don't know what to do. Please help

How hot is it getting?
What is your hot coolant defuel set at?
What tune are you running?
It could possibly be a blown HG.
What other mods do you have done?

when I noticed it I saw it at 230 and it was climbing. Those are the only mods I have done. I dont know if it is a blown head gasket because it runs at normal temp when the programmer is on the stock setting.

Any other setting than stock it starts to over heat

Your dash gauge corresponds with what the display on the MM is reading?

What tuning are you running (tune version and firmware version).

I'm no expert but it sounds like to much fuel and not enough air. Raising boost pressure, a proper exhaust, and intake might help quite a bit. Check with Bully's Performance. Eric gave me a fantastic price on an Fass 95 about a week ago.

Unfortunately an aftermarket intake won't get more air into his engine, the OEM set-up is more than efficient, but he already has an aftermarket intake.
Raising boost won't do anything as that's simply a measurement of restriction..
But you did give me a thought. He said he has a DPF delete. Is that just the DPF gone but the NOX and Cat are still present? If so, OP are you running DPF delete tuning with the other components in place?
