Delete feed back

Ok guys here is the question. I just sold my 08 6.7 cummins with the deletes a few weeks ago. When i did the deletes on the dodge i had one issue on a 3 hour drive my truck went into regen and at that time I did not know that much about delete set up and had my truck towed long story short. So with that being said I never really felt good about taking my dodge on a long trip. So what I'm asking is the spartan, or sct tuners and delete kits, pretty dependable? I know nothing is guaranteed, I just do not want to worry about my truck going into regen or have any minor problems. I just want to set it and forget it. thanks

I have had 2 6.4's with Spartans tuners on both and never had a problem out of either. Both have been on long road trips over 3 hours You wont be disapointed. If you have any questions contact John at Cobbs Diesel he has a wealth of knowledge, the link is in my sig

Spartan has proven to be the top of the line tuner for the 6.4. I love mine and wouldn't have anything else.

I know it is the most expensive package, but Spartan still does not have any real competition as far as power, mileage, and reliability are concerned.

im about to drive my 08 with sct and deleted from los angeles, california to new orleans, louisiana for a week and a half long trip. not to mention the short trip i will be taking while im there to tuscaloosa, alabama and back. total about 5,000 miles, with 2,000 miles of that being non stop twice. and needless to say, i am not concerned at all about my truck for this mission. i know it will love it!!

I would say the tuners that are available are dependable. It all depends on how much power you want now, how much your going to want in the future, and how much it's worth to you.

Emissions shut down on the 6.4 are more simple than the 6.7 cummins. There are a lot less problems, you should NEVER have a regen with any of the big programmer. There is the possibility of occasional check engine light, but it is a very slight one, and usually only if you are really abusing the power.

I have had the Cat/DPF delete and spartan on since march this year, I have made 2 trips to TN from IA about 700 miles one way, usally takes me about 10 - 11 hours depending on traffic... about to head back down this weekend. All I can say is both trips hand calc'd 22 MPG running 70-75, I can almost make it there on 1 tank, where before it was always 1 stop, and more often than not 2 to fill up
