Free Spartan Tunes

Does anybody still have the free tunes from Spartan? I know their not the best but I would like to try alot of different tunes. At least untill I can get some more cash for tunes.

Would It hurt my truck to run some of these tunes on my truck since they are for diff strat's than mine. I thought it would be better than a canned tune. Even though it is kinda like a canned tuned.

Thanks

Don't mix and match strategies, your asking for trouble. Spartans old tunes are hit and miss with problems and no tech support for their old SCT tunes.


Want something like this ^^^ PM me
06 F-250 project "Overbudget" in progress. best of 12.4@107
05 6.0 Ranger (deranged) best of 11.0@124 fuel only

Okay.... Man was hoping for some decent free tunes.

How do you actually order custom tunes? Where are the forms for ordering.

I went to the Innovative diesel website and emailed the guys . had my tunes in less then 48 hrs . they will ask for your stategy ,tuning device serial number and mods , then they will email you your tune file. I tried one of the spartan tunes on my truck and it seemed to run fine but i just felt better knowing that my innovative tunes were actually written for my truck specifically. figure out what you want in your tune before you order , such as firm or softer shifting , egr valve on or off , ect . you will be happy with Innovatives tuning , it really transforms the truck into a whole new animal .

FYI : the extreme street gets great mpg , i think it may be their best on fuel .

I tuned my truck with the sct and now it seems like I have a miss under wot @ 2200 rpm and above. Almost like it got a injector failing or starving for fuel. Could my ficm be causing this. It ran fine with the edge turned up to five. It doesn't do it when it's stock only with the canned perf. sct tune.

is that the only SCT tune it misses on. do the tow and street tunes run fine? one of the perks of custom tuning is if you experience an issue like you are they can give you support and tweak the tune if it's tuning related to make things work right.

i would keep it stock till you find out whats going on . i'm not real sure what that could be , i would assume its a fueling problem but its really hard to say just by reading your problems and not physically seeing the truck . have you checked your turbo lately ? i had a similar experience and soon after my turbo blew and it seemed that was the cause . keep an eye on it and ask lots of questions and do research . there is alot to be learned and people on here are a great help .

Turbo was just cleaned Sat. It also seems like the sct has half the kick the edge did. Going back to stock untill I can figure it out. I will check the ficm voltage tommorrow at work. Any thing else I can check? What fitting goes into the fuel test port? Npt?

Thanks for the info and help
