Spartan or H&S?

I'm new to the Ford world.(Had 9 Dodges)I ran the XRT on my 6.7L and really liked it. I have been reading all about the Spartan and it seems really impressive. But I'm sure H&S will be on top of their game also. Also should I just get a cat/dpf 4" delete pipe or the whole thing? Please help me decide guys and thanks in advance. Later.

i'd go with spartan... H&S are at the top of thier game for cummins but too soon to tell for the 6.4. It depends on your preferences for the exhaust. it's a bit easier to just swap out a delete pipe instead of a full exhaust for warranty visits. i will get the full exhaust when my warranty runs out though. i'm sure mostly everyone else will give you the same answer

I would go with Spartan at this point. H&S has some proving to do, and there are currenty only tester units out. You could do a 4" or 5" downpipe back exhaust, or you could just do a DPF/DOC delete and keep the factory exhaust or put on an aftermarket DPF-back.

Spartan is definitely the way to go at this point, too early to tell on the H&S.

look at it this way......H&S tunes different trucks , as far as I know Spartan has almost totally built their buisiness around one...the 6.4. I have never been around either tuner all I am going by is what I read on here.

I cannot express how awsome Spartan is! its awsome stuff! And I would never buy any tuner that doesnt hack into the TCM and adjust to hold the power. stock 5R110W which is whats in your 6.4 (unless its a standard) can only hold 40-60 hp over stock safely without Trans tuning...anything other then that and you can kiss the life of your tranny good bye. Although I will say the 5R110w is gonna hold the power way better then the dodges tuned or untuned.

There will be TCM tuning with the H&S, that is why the moved their original release date back. All the feedback they got from this forum made them go back in and make changes. It will be a good product, it will just take some time.

Sct is a more inexpensive route but not as advanced as spartan tuning
