Spartan users, how many miles have you logged?

I'm absolutely blown away by the fact that the transmission will hold up to these 275 tunes by Spartan while the 68RFE and the Allison can't take nearly that much power without major problems. At any rate, I'm curious how many of you have logged substantial mileage on the 210, 275, or even 310 Spartan tune and haven't suffered any damage to your transmissions. I'm currently in the market for a Diesel pickup and the strength of these transmissions has put the Ford up near the top of my list.

This is all very good news to me. One of my customers is a International dealer and I was talking to one of the mechanics today about the 6.4L. He said they have had very little problems with them in the school bus applications, even less complaints than the new Maxxforce I6 motors that replaced the tried and true DT466 engine. It's nice to look at one in a school bus because you can actually see the whole motor. I'm still amazed these trannies hold up to over 1k lb/ft of torque in stock form.

I've seen your posts in other sections of this forum and I've been wanting to ask you how your Ford compares to your Dodge. Obviously you have much more mods in the Dodge, but overall how do they compare. I have a soft spot for Cummins engines and the Dodges are still in the running only because they have those motors in them.
