I assuming that you have the dash daq and everything that came with the spartan tuner?

There is no real way to tell which tune is loaded, what i would do is just go into tuning, load tune, pick the tune you want (not sure what your choices are) and load that tune. It takes about 15 min and that way you know what tune its on. More than likely its on the 210 tune i would bet.

You can tell which tune you have loaded by doing the following:

From Gauges select Exit. Select Tuning, then I Accept. Next select Vehicle Info, and turn the key on . It will display all your vehicle info, including which tune you have loaded....

08 F350 King Ranch, SRW, CC, LB, White/Gold, 4x2, 3.73, Auto, Spartan Flash Console, 310 Tune, S&B Air Intake, Code Alarm, & Console Vault

Ok thanks guys. My other question is how can i load more gauges to my dashdaq? I would really like to monitor the egt's and tranny temp, but can't find these in my lists of gauges?
I'm over here by the illinois state line, about 15 miles west of Purdue University.

Ok Mick I did like you said and looked at the tunes. I found the 275 and one simply labelled RACE. Any idea what this might be? Any help on the gauges?

I havent purchased any tunee, at least not yet. I drove it on the 275 today it felt I had more power before. Could the race tune be a 310? or just the different version of the 275?

If there is a 310 file on the tuner it would be labeled BPv1 or v2, BrutePower, or 310v something.
